We Still Need Your Help! Consider Donating to the Boater’s Rights Advocacy Fund Today.

To all of those who have contributed to the 2021 Boater’s Rights Advocacy Fund already we THANK YOU. We know there is no good time to ask for donations, but we are currently at 50% of MTOA’s goal and are appealing to you for any support, big or small, to help get us over our goal line.


Why We Continue On:

The Boaters’ Rights Advocacy Coalition is committed to defending boaters’ rights for anchoring, access, and minimal regulation requirements. As legislative and restrictive access continues to increase, in an abundance of caution and desire to protect issues facing all boaters and public waterways, the Coalition has leveraged member donations to fund lobbyist support to assure a voice and a seat at the table.


This Year:

The fundraising campaign for 2021 was launched last month across four coalition organizations. Organizations are active advocates for our members in many ways, but we handle most issues with staff time and expertise, volunteers, and grass-roots efforts from our members when needed. We ask our members to contribute individually when needed and we leave it up to each of you to decide your level of participation and support.


Ways to Give:

Donations can be made in your name, or in memory of a loved one, online by clicking the anchor below:



You do not need to have a PayPal account to donate, simply select the PayPal button as if you had an account, and you may proceed to donate as a guest from the PayPal window.


Thank you for supporting our continued efforts to have a seat at the table throughout the legislative process everywhere public waterways and boating are threatened.
