CHICAGO - The National Marine Distributors Association recently became a Gold-Level contributor to the Grow Boating Initiative's Rising Tide Fund with a $30,000 donation - $10,000 a year over a three-year period.
NMDA's pledge brings the grand total of Rising Tide Fund contributions to more than $260,000 since January, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported in a release today.
“NMDA is fully on-board with the Grow Boating Initiative and is committed to helping it succeed throughout the industry,” said Nancy Cueroni, NMDA executive director. “NMDA contributed $50,000 to the Grow Boating start-up fund when the Initiative was just getting off the ground, and this most recent donation is evidence of continued support on behalf of the marine distributors.”
Established in 2006, the Rising Tide Fund is a means by which industry stakeholders can pledge voluntary contributions at varying levels of commitment to the Grow Boating Initiative. The pledge commitment lasts for three years and can be made at the following levels: Participant ($1-$2,999); Bronze ($3,000-$14,999); Silver ($15,000-$29,999); Gold ($30,000-$74,999); Platinum ($75,000-$149,999); Double Platinum ($150,000-$224,999); and Triple Platinum ($225,000-$299,999).
