WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Our focus is the ocean. And our community is every one of us who depends upon her.
The ocean transcends all geographic boundaries, and is responsible for producing at least every second breath we take. The ocean covers 71% of the planet. For nearly 20 years now, we’ve strived to bridge a philanthropy gap – which has historically given the ocean only 7% of environmental grantmaking, and ultimately, less than 1% of all philanthropy – to support the communities that need this funding for marine science and conservation the most. We were founded to help change this less than favorable ratio.
