IOBG Humanitarian Foundation

Welcome to the Humanitarian Foundation Web Site

"The International Order of the Blue Gavel Humanitarian Foundation provides the boating community the ability to create real differences in others' lives. The foundation provides resources to existing charities and benefits communities through new initiatives involving boating activities and education."

What is HF?

The Humanitarian Foundation has a long history of providing support to boating and educational initiatives within the community.

How You Can Help

The IOBGHF is a volunteer organization, which depends on generous contributions of time and talent. Not all people can participate in administration and operation of the IOBGHF, but if you do want to make a world of difference, catch our spirit and make hope a reality, you can make a tax deductible contribution to the IOBGHF.

The opportunity to make a difference for another's life is one of the greater human satisfactions. The IOBFGHF is committed to provide opportunities for participation for people to conveniently select a cause, which means something special to them.

We invite you to make a world of difference, catch our spirit and make hope a reality.
