CMM RECEIVES GRANT FROM WEST MARINE

 

The Calvert Marine Museum is the proud recipient of a BlueFuture grant from West Marine, the world’s premier Waterlife Outfitter. West Marine has awarded $1,500 to 25 non-profit organizations across North America that are dedicated to getting young people on and around the water in recreational and education capacities.

The grants are unrestricted and West Marine allows grant recipients to determine how and when they use these funds. “No one understands the needs of a community better than those living and working in that community,” says Deb Radcliff, West Marine Senior Vice President, Marketing. “We think these special organizations are doing incredible work to improve access to the water, teach valuable job and life skills, and encourage young people from all backgrounds to create and treasure their very own waterlife experiences.”

The museum’s education department proposes to use the funds for a variety of needs, including new ipads and cases, cast and seine nets to be used for children’s programs and camps, and new easels. “We are delighted to have received this generous grant from West Marine, one which will enable the museum’s education department to expand its outreach and program potential through the acquisition of new equipment and educational tools,” said Jeff Murray, Deputy Director.
