Since 1997, when the idea to create an inclusive school that would provide access to Duxbury Bay for the public was launched into a working plan, over $20 million in private funds has been raised to make that plan a vibrant reality. Today, well over 3,400 youth and adults participate in programs each year, and an impressive crop of “home grown” instructors have assumed leadership roles on the staff. The Ellison Campus’s Smith Building has become a South Shore destination that is used and appreciated by people of all ages, abilities and means for getting out on the water – or just watching an relaxing.
The investments made by DBMS Founders have built a fiscally sound, debt free institution with a bold vision for the future. Your investment as a new Founder will fund the next leg of the journey – and we hope you will take part in planning where we will go!
Founders are charitable investors in DBMS.
To date, these individuals have contributed over $13.6 million in capital and annual operations support, providing the funds to improve the waterfront, build today’s DBMS campus and purchase the boats and equipment required to operate top-notch programs. Going forward, Founders, along with members of the Legacy Society, are the investors who will maintain and sustain the unique and valued resource the school has become for Duxbury and all who love Duxbury Bay.
