Become a DBMS Founder

A little history…

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-three 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.

A special thanks to our 2021 DBMS Donors…
