One Day, One Goal, One Big Party

The IGY Community Outreach Project, “Inspire Giving through You” is giving back to our local communities that surround the marinas we operate. Our goal is to get people off the boats and into the communities where we operate to support local charities and nonprofit organizations, then return to the marinas and have a party to celebrate a day of giving back!

IGY Marinas, IGY Anchor Club Sponsors, boat owners, captains and crews will be the driving force behind participation by rolling up their sleeves and pitching in to help contribute at each of the chosen destinations. Let’s make the commitment to inspire others to give back through worldwide efforts.
