How to Give

GIVING OPTIONS

1. Give to a pooled fund, known as a Field of Interest Fund. If you want to support a specific field of ocean philanthropy, want TOF's expert fund managers to make the decision as to whom the funds should go, and want to leverage your funds with those of others, then choosing one of the existing funds makes sense for you.

2. Start your own fund. 

3. Give to our Ocean Leadership Fund.  This fund is for the donor interested in supporting the value-added services The Ocean Foundation provides that are not covered by other projects.

4. Give to a fiscal sponsorship project. 

METHODS OF GIVING
