We need every single good idea, every capable person to be part of solving this crisis because we can’t do it alone. Our staff, project managers, grantees, senior fellows, and ocean heroes represent diverse fields of expertise, including marine conservation, ocean governance, scientific research, and fisheries management. The Ocean Foundation provides them a platform from which to continue their important work and an opportunity for our donors, programs, and staff to benefit from their specific expertise.
What do you love about the ocean?
The Ocean Foundation's Initiatives are a way to combine your resources with those of other individuals that have similar goals, increasing your philanthropic impact. Your donation provides grants for nonprofits, universities, and community organizations all around the world. In each of our nine initiatives we are looking to mitigate current threats or problems, and further research in these areas. Our nine initiatives are: International Sustainable Aquaculture, Coral Reefs, Coasts and Beaches, Marine Mammals, Polar Seas, Sea Turtles, Ocean Leadership, World Oceans, and Ocean Acidification.
How can you help? If you recognize the value of investing resources in strategic ocean solutions or want a platform for your corporate community to participate in, we can work together on strategic ocean solutions. Our partnerships take many forms: from cash and in-kind donations to cause-related marketing campaigns. Our fiscally sponsored projects also work with partners on many different levels. Please visit the hosted projects page to learn more. These cooperative efforts are helping to restore and protect our ocean.
The Ocean Foundation is increasing the capacity of the ocean conservation field and bridging the gap between the growing awareness of the crisis in the ocean and true implemented conservation. Our projects and supported organizations are carefully selected in order to fulfill gaps in ocean conservation work or provide innovative ways to tackle the threats. Check out our Fiscal Sponsorship page for more information on becoming a fiscally sponsored project or supported organization.
