Boat Donation




One way to support GKCPAL is by donating your old boat. This is a great way to raise funds for youth programs. When you donate, GKCPAL will receive a portion of the proceeds from the re-sale of the boat.  Boats 4 Causes will make the process quick and easy so donate your old boat today!

Step 1:

Fill out a form online or call 1-888-311-3529.  Be sure to mention the Greater King County Police Activities League as your charity of choice.

Step 2:

After discussing the details of your boat, like the type, size, condition, accessories, as well as reviewing the required items listed below, Boats 4 Causes will determine the best way to handle your boat donation. In some cases they will tow it to one of their sales lots, or, if you prefer, they can sell it from its current location. More money will go to GKCPAL if the boat is sold from its current location.  Either way, the boat will be moved from your property, slip or storage facility.

Boats 4 Causes will require that you send or email them some details about your boat:

  1. recent photos,
  2. a description of your boat and all of its equipment and accessories (they will provide a multiple choice checklist for you to make this step easy and painless), and
  3. your title or boat registration.

Once they have everything they need, Boats 4 Causes will find the right home for your boat. They will handle all the details necessary in this transaction including processing the DMV paperwork. If your boat is sold from its current location, NO ONE WILL EVER CONTACT YOU OR COME BY TO VIEW THE BOAT.

If your boat is sold from its current location, Boats 4 Causes will hold a 7-day auction at the end of which, your boat WILL be sold. They will work with the new buyer, in some cases the dockmaster, to coordinate the transfer and pick-up of your boat.

Step 3:

Receive a Tax Receipt and a Free Cash Rebate Voucher

Once your boat has been sold,  Boats 4 Causes will send you a tax receipt for the full amount that the boat was sold for. In addition, they will send you an email notice to claim your Free Cash Rebate Voucher entitling you to earn up to $3,000 in cash rebates when you shop online at over 800 retailers like Target, the Apple Store and many more.

It’s that simple! Donate your boat today and help us empower the youth of King County.
