LINK YOUR BUSINESS WITH A TRUE CLASSIC:
BECOME A SPONSOR OF THE MARTHA’S VINEYARD STRIPED BASS & BLUEFISH DERBY

Annually, the Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby attracts fishermen from around the country to visit the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard and enjoy its world-class fishing. The Derby is the most historic, successful, and popular saltwater fishing tournament on the East Coast. Each year, nearly 3000 anglers participate in the contest, which is now recognized as a true “Fall Classic” of fishing.

Aside from managing a premier tournament, at the core of the Derby’s mission is to give back to the Vineyard community and to support and protect recreational fishing efforts. The Derby awards college scholarships to graduates of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, as well as scholarships for youngsters to attend summer camps. Additionally, thousands of pounds of fish fillets are donated to the senior citizens of the island community through the Derby’s fillet program. Finally, the Derby supports local conservation causes, various youth organizations, and safe boating awareness through its charitable contributions.

By becoming a Derby sponsor, your company will be associated with one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious tournaments. Your contribution will also be a significant help to the charitable efforts of the Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby, Inc., a fully accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, making all donations tax deductible. All donations are valued at the retail value of the goods.
