**The BoatNation Foundation** was founded to promote awareness of safe boating practices and boating education.
As a non-profit organization, our goal is to help fund programs for teaching safe boating skills to our youth and to our military veterans, including disabled vets.
Exposure to boating education at any age teaches independence and opens many doors for lifelong, healthy outdoor activity.
Learning good boating skills also helps increase confidence and communication.
These skills benefit anyone, including kids and veterans, throughout both their personal lives and working career environment.
**We want to give back.**
