Raffle to Benefit  the BoatNerd.Com web site

The Web site Great Lakes and Seaway Shipping On-Line, the support organization for the BoatNerd.Com website, was granted 401(c) 3 non-profit status by the IRS in 1996. Organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, our goal is to continue to enhance the general public knowledge of the maritime commercial operations and history of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway by publishing printed and on-line materials about the shipping industry and to otherwise encourage an appreciation of Great Lakes maritime history.

The move allows BoatNerd to become self-sufficient and will guarantee the longevity of the site. Trip raffles are currently our only method of fund raising for the site. These funds are used to pay connection charges, purchase hardware and fund development projects.

We are currently seeking additional items that would be used in conjunction with the boat trip prize (such as second and third place winners) or otherwise raffled off to help support BoatNerd's efforts. Can you help us?
We would also appreciate the donation of hats, flags, books or any other items that could be raffled off at our annual BoatNerd gatherings.

Contributions to Great Lakes and Seaway Shipping On-Line Inc. may be tax deductible depending on your circumstances. Please consult with you tax advisor if your contribution is going to be listed on your tax records.

All contributions will be listed on the raffle page with links if desired.

Please send items to:
