In 1995 the Marine Industries Association of Collier County Foundation was established. Charitable recognition (501c (3)) was awarded in 1996 by the Internal Revenue Service. The Foundation was organized to develop, produce, and support programs related to recreational boating and our marine environment. The Foundation will not participate in lobbying activities but will concentrate on programs of education and safety for local boaters and those for the enhancement of our marine environment. Many of these programs will be conducted directly through the MIACC Foundation, programs for boating safety in local schools, donation of equipment to defend the marine environment, and production and free distribution of charts of local waters indicating speed zones and areas of marine conservation. The Foundation will also support other community based programs/projects that are consistent with the goals of the Foundation.

In 1997 the Foundation partnered with the City of Naples to apply for a grant for a pump-out boat to service area boaters, in an effort to improve and support the National Clean Waters Act.

Annually, the Foundation produces the Naples Bay Christmas Boat Parade, the proceeds of which are donated to a local charity.

The Foundation is working with local environmental organizations to decrease pollution of our waterways, improve protection of the marine habitat, and improve boating safety.
