Madison Boats is focused on connecting people to each other and to the lake. We have found that providing a safe way for people to continue to get out and share time with their friends and family is more important than ever.
We want to do more - we want to partner with YOU to support our community!

Madison West High Area Collaborative
The Madison West High Area Collaborative has been recently formed as a way to serve the collective needs in the West High Attendance area (14 schools in total). Their goal is to support the food needs of our students and families affected by Covid-19 as well as to secure donations to meet these families financial needs such as homelessness and eviction prevention, funding to keep phone and internet services, and household/personal hygiene supplies.
Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM)
MOM's Housing Stability program offers eviction prevention and housing stabilization funds, as well as an opportunity to connect with a case manager who can connect families with all of their services. When COVID-19 hit, MOM knew that the people they serve - some of our communities' most vulnerable - would have additional needs. They also knew that we would have people looking for assistance who had never reached out before.
