CISF also accepts marine-related donated items. However, at the moment we do not have a physical site at which we can store boats, etc... Thus, if you would like to donate a boat or marine-related item to CISF, please contact Meg Myles to see if CISF can use the item. Here are a few things to consider when donating an item:

1.) CISF cannot give you any tax advice.
2.) If you intend to claim more than $4,999 deduction from your donation to CISF, you will need to have the item appraised. CISF cannot help you with the appraisal process. Any cost for appraisal must be paid for by the donor.
3.) CISF has three options when accepting a donation:
                    a.) Accept the donation and use it for three years.
                    b.) Accept the donation and sell it within three years. In this case, if there is a difference between what the          donor deducts versus how much CISF sells the item for, the donor potentially has a tax liability for the difference in deduction versus sale price.
                    c.) Accept the donation and make significant improvements on the item. Once signfiicant improvements have been made and documented, the donee can then sell the item.

In every instance except (a), CISF must notify the donee that the item has been sold.
