Then, scroll down the various amounts til you see “Other”, and fill in with the amount you'd like to donate.


Fill in your personal information.


Below that, you will see “Additional Information” with a box to check that says "I would like to either dedicate this donation or make a gift membership to someone”.  Please check that box.


For “Dedication Type”, choose “In Honor Of”

Please consider making a donation to the Freight & Salvage as well.  They are undergoing very difficult  times, having been closed for 7 months with no clear prospect of when they will be able to reopen. The BOTMC greatly appreciates all the Freight does for us as our fiscal sponsor.
