The mission of the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club (CCABC) is to maintain the rich heritage of Chris-Craft through research, communication, and education; to encourage the use, preservation, and restoration of Chris-Craft boats; and to enhance the experience of owning a Chris-Craft. Owning a Chris-Craft is not a prerequisite for membership. Many of our members own boats other than Chris-Craft and some may own no boat at all. We encourage owners and enthusiasts to become active and involved members. The CCABC is a not-for- profit organization whose governing body is elected by the membership. The Club is supported by membership dues, our Sponsorship Program, our advertisers, and through tax-deductible donations. Annual membership includes full access to our website resources and quarterly issues of The Brass Bell, our premium publication.
The Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization. This allows a tax deduction for persons making contributions or gifts—in the same manner as other educational institutions, churches, and charities. We are happy to accept catalogs, archival information, and/or monetary donations. The Club would also consider gifts and contributions of boats and larger items depending upon their location and their potential for Club projects.
