Krueger for his dedication and passion for the education of boating industry professionals, and for his leadership as a founding director for the Foundation.”

The Recreational Boating Industries Educational Foundational (RBIEF)


In the effort to continuously advance the marine industry, Michigan Boating Industries Association (MBIA) has made a commitment to provide education and support to all of MBIA members. To facilitate this education, the MBIA created a scholarship foundation to financially assist the professional development of those in the marine industry called the Recreational Boating Industries Educational Foundation (RBIEF). Founding Board Members and contributors in 1986 were: Greg Krueger, Ray Underwood, Jim Coburn, and Robert Liggett, Jr.


RBIEF, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation, was founded in 1986, to provide financial support for education, training and professional development in the recreational marine trades. Specifically, RBIEF’s purpose is to offer financial assistance through full or matching tuition and program funding for MBIA members, member’s employees, family and students whenever funding is available.


Contributions are tax deductible and can be made by those interested in supporting the Foundation at any level. Naming rights contributions of $30,000 and higher will honor donors with named scholarships in the name of your choice. Please send your check made payable to RBIEF to the address below, and thank you in advance for contributing to the industry.
