Give 2 GLBBS Challenge




Click the button above to make a donation!

UPDATE: As of 2:30p (EST) on November 27th, we have already received pledges/donations covering 40% of our goal of $50,000 to maximize the Challenge Match.  THANK YOU!

Join the #Give2GLBBS $100,000 challenge as part of #GivingTuesday!

An incredibly generous donor has challenged Great Lakes Boat Building School and our supporters to see if we can raise $100,000 in 24 hours in support of our academic programs.  This particular donor has agreed to match (up to $50,000) all donations collected during a 24-hour period starting at NOON on November 27th.

That means that every dollar you donate will be DOUBLED! In other words, your $5 donation will become $10 or your $100 donation will become $200. So AMAZING!

What you need to know:

      • only donations that are received between Noon (12:00p ET) on November 27th and Noon on November 28th are eligible for the #Give2GLBBS $100,000 Challenge
      • donations can be made through the GLBBS website, via social media, and by phone – these options will be made available on the 27th
