Boat Donation Program

Yes!  Your donated boat could benefit URI while providing you with a valuable tax deduction.

Boat donations are being accepted for the University of Rhode Island and are now being administered by Block Island Maritime Funding Inc. (BIMF).  

In addition to providing a source of support to URI students and programs (of your choosing!), boat donors may also benefit from immediate and significant tax deductions, equal to the full market value of the vessel at the time of the donation.

For more information, please contact BIMF at 401.842.0752 and specify that you'd like to support the University. You can also visit them online at

You may also contact the URI Foundation by calling 401.874.7900 and asking for "Boats."
