Help Fund the Future of DBMS

In order for us to keep improving and making maritime learning accessible for all, DBMS relies heavily on the generosity of our community members and those passionate about our school.

DBMS is designated by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization (EIN 04-3348183). All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The Annual Fund is one of the most important aspects of the school as it is presents an “on-going” fundraising initiative for community members and those who are passionate about DBMS. It supports Accessail and Maritime Adventures, the school’s outreach programs that together serve nearly 500 disabled and disadvantaged individuals each year. Donations also support need-based program tuition scholarships and costs associated with hosting the Duxbury High School sailing and rowing teams that are not covered by tuition and fees.

The DBMS Community Fund for the Future and Legacy Society have been established by the Board of Directors to ensure the long term fiscal health of the school by providing capital for campus and fleet maintenance. Please contact the school if you are interested in either one of these funds for more information and other ways to contribute through multi-year pledges and planned gifts from your estate.

In conjunction with the generous donations made through our Annual Fund, Community Fund for the Future, and Legacy Society, we also hold different fundraisers for the school. Opening of the Bay is our biggest event and will be happening this year May 22nd and 23rd. The High School sailing and rowing teams also host their own semi-annual fundraisers that guarantee a good time for all involved.

Whatever it is that makes you excited about DBMS, please consider donating to our school. Every little bit will help us to improve our programs and support our outreach efforts.
