Boat Donation Jacksonville, Florida: Your Old Boat Can Be a Life Changer

Jacksonville is the most populous city in the state of Florida and the 12th most populous city in the United States. The 2019 census estimated the city’s population at 911,507. It is expected to reach 1 million in one or two years.

The citizens of Jacksonville have their fair share of problems just like those from other big cities. Many of these problems are borne by the city’s disadvantaged residents — the men and women who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, skills, and experience, and other personal issues that serve as barriers to finding stable and decent sources of income and living an economically independent life.

If you have a boat that’s getting too costly to maintain, you can make use of this to extend a helping hand to the struggling residents of your city. You can do this by handing over that vessel to us at Goodwill Car Donations through our Jacksonville, Florida car donation program.

Your boat donation will allow you to contribute something big for your community. It will go a long way in fighting poverty and empowering the disadvantaged residents in your area.

We’ll auction off your boat donation, with the proceeds going straight to the Goodwill organizations serving your city. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits are dedicated to improving the living conditions of disadvantaged Americans. They use the money to help fund the services they provide to their beneficiaries. These services include:

  • Job training and placement
  • Career development and counseling
  • On-site and virtual skills training
  • Youth education and employment
  • Mentoring
  • Financial management training
  • Disability benefits support
  • Family strengthening services
