Over the past 20 years, the Foundation has awarded over $800,000 to organizations that have developed creative projects to promote safe boating on local waterways. Some of them include producing movie theatre public service announcements, flying a blimp with safety messaging above popular boating spots, and the creation of an interactive, downloadable chart highlighting local safety concerns.
While all applications will be considered, the Foundation will give preferential consideration to grant proposals that incorporate new and innovative ideas that focus on how to reduce alcohol-related fatalities.
To download an application and learn more about these Boating Safety Grants, please visit
