Because of generous donors like you, we are privileged to award scholarships to deserving students each year. Friends and alumni can create a scholarship in honor or memory of a loved one by establishing the scholarship name, award criteria and funding method. Annual scholarships make a significant difference by reducing the education costs of Great Lakes Boat Building School students.
Currently the school offers four named scholarships through the Les Cheneaux Community Foundation to which individuals may make contributions.
Help students and leave a legacy with gifts of cash, real estate, appreciated securities like stocks and bonds, retirement assets and beneficiary designations through bequests and life insurance. All may be donated to GLBBS.
GLBBS is preparing the next generation of skilled craftsmen and craftswomen. We offer many ways for your corporation or foundation to partner with us.

A gift of personal property may include equipment, boats, inventory, books, works of art, or other tangible property. Gifts-in-kind will be used to benefit the school as designated by the donor. Acceptance of the gift is based on whether we can use the gift in furtherance of our mission. Consideration will be given to the cost of accepting and maintaining the gift as well as costs associated with potential resale of the gift.
Depending upon the donor’s tax circumstances, a charitable deduction may be claimed if the gift is accepted for the School’s tax-exempt purposes.
