About Sea Tow Foundation for Boating Safety and Education



In 2007, Sea Tow Services International, Inc. founder, Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer, was concerned about the number of preventable boating-related accidents, injuries and deaths and decided to create a non-profit organization that could directly address these issues through education and awareness. The resulting national public service organization received 501(c)(3) nonprofit status and was named the Sea Tow Foundation.




The Sea Tow Foundation mission is to promote safe boating practices that directly reduce fatalities, incidents, and property damage related to recreational boating.



The Sea Tow Foundation has a diverse revenue stream of individual donors, funders such as federal grants from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund administered by the U.S. Coast Guard, partners that support us through in-kind gifts and services, and sponsors who help us promote our programs. Donations to Sea Tow Foundation are tax-deductible.
