All gifts are vital to the young people and families benefiting by participation in FOBH programs. 
Information regarding ways to give is presented in general terms here.
If you are interested in learning more about ways to give, email us at info@new.fobhnj.org.

Gifts of Cash

Most donors find that a personal check is the easiest way to make a gift. These donations are tax- deductible to the extent permitted by law, and have an immediate impact upon the young people and families we serve. Checks should be made payable to FOBH and mailed to: FOBH, PO Box 454, Belmar, NJ 07719. Please include with your check a note indicating whether your gift is unrestricted (i.e., to be used where it is most needed) or restricted (i.e., to be used for a specific purpose). Unrestricted gifts allow FOBH discretion in determining where your gift will do the greatest good.

Stocks and Securities

Gifts of stocks and securities provide immediate support to FOBH. Please consult your financial advisor as to how to make these gifts to FOBH.

Matching Gifts

A matching gift program is your employer’s corporate sponsored benefit that can double or even triple your gift to FOBH by matching your contribution. Check with your human resources office to find out if your company has a matching gift program.


Donations of goods relevant to FOBH’s mission and programs are welcome. Items will be gladly accepted if they can be put to good use and provide clear benefit to FOBH and those it serves.

Bequests & Planned Gifts

By remembering FOBH in your will or trust you create a lasting legacy for our future young sailors. Bequests may include an estate, a percentage of an estate or a specific cash amount. Please consult your attorney or financial advisor.

Memorial/Tribute Gifts

FOBH gratefully acknowledges gifts made in memory of a deceased, or in honor of a living, friend or family member. Please indicate your intention when making your gift via check or online.
