Yacht & Boat Donation Program

Massachusetts Maritime Academy is a special mission public college in the Massachusetts Public Higher Education System.

Since 1891, the Academy has prepared young men and women for careers on land and sea and is unique in balancing a regimental structure and clearly-articulated code of conduct within a typical four year college environment.

The Academy is recognized by the IRS as a public charitable organization; donations are fully deductible.  For more than thirty years, the Academy has accepted vessels donated for significant intervening use, material improvements, or to sell to raise money for programs and scholarships.

Eighty percent of our students seek some form of financial assistance in order to reach graduation and many of our students are the first in their families to graduate from college.  It is through donor support that we are able to offer programs and opportunities that would otherwise go unfunded in today's tight budget environment.
