Maritime Funding Association of Maine

Our goal is to handle boat donations, so that our partners can concentrate on their respective programs. With our expertise in managing donations, we hope to help other groups avoid the pitfalls that can easily plague a fledgling donation program. Donated boats are either put into direct use by an affiliate with a need for that particular boat, or they are put up for charter to help raise funds to support programs.
