Projects

Direct programmatic sponsorship with The Ocean Foundation is our most popular form of fiscal sponsorship, and it provides individuals and groups with a robust and far-reaching platform for achieving their programmatic goals. Our Fiscally Sponsored Funds are not entities separate from TOF, but rather fall under the umbrella of and are managed administratively by TOF. As a Project of the The Ocean Foundation, we offer the following services:

To provide these services, we charge a base rate of 10% on all incoming revenue.* A Project must raise at least $10,000 per year to remain in good standing. Once you become a sponsored Project of The Ocean Foundation, we delegate the responsibility for the day-to-day activities to the Project Manager, and we work closely with you to monitor the performance of the Project. In addition, as part of The Ocean Foundation, you become part of a diverse network of nonprofit and conservation professionals, creating additional opportunities for peer support and collaboration.

For more information, you can download our Fiscal Sponsorship Fund overview for a complete breakdown of the services we offer. If you are interested in applying, please contact Kama Dean, Program Consultant.

* With the exception of public/government funding and event income, which are charged an additional 5% to cover the additional administrative and special government audit costs.

** May be subject to additional fees depending on the extent of services.
