Thank you for considering a donation to the Duxbury Bay Maritime School!

In 1997, a small group of individuals founded the Duxbury Bay Maritime School with a simple idea, “to connect the community to Duxbury Bay.”  Outgoing Board Chair, Fred Clifford, describes it best:

“No organization that I have been involved with comes even close to the deep satisfaction as DBMS. Perhaps because this miracle started with an idea and a few individuals with a passion to make it happen. We started from scratch, with nothing – no money, no land, but with this idea. And then we sought and received overwhelming support from our community. And we made it happen.”

Now, twenty-one years later, it is truly remarkable what this idea has become. Each year, DBMS connects thousands of individuals to Duxbury Bay through a wide variety of educational and recreational programming. Yet, these connections simply would not be possible without the sustained support of our community.

There are a number of ways your gift could positively impact DBMS. Below are two different funds that are equal in importance to the success of the school – to learn more about either the Annual Fund or the Campus Connection Campaign click on the links below.

Annual Fund

As program fees cover only half of the DBMS annual operating budget, the school relies on you to help fulfill its mission.
