DAN Development
Dive Club Donor Program : Recognition

Dive Clubs and their members provide great support to DAN for dive safety. They provide financial support through fundraisers held specifically for DAN and in conjunction with other club activities. They encourage or require DAN membership and insurance for members, especially those going on club dive trips. They also provide valuable information to club members about dive safety and the suggested do’s and don’ts for comfortable diving. Many clubs invite speakers, some from DAN, to provide this information or they place information on their websites and newsletters.

Divers Alert Network is pleased to recognize these dive clubs with the special designation of DAN Dive Club Donor.

To Qualify:

DAN Dive Club Donors are formally established groups of divers that may or may not be associated with a dive store, association, or other business. DAN Dive Club Donors have a board of directors, or officers elected or appointed by their members.
