Our focus is the ocean. And our community is every one of us who depends on it.

The ocean transcends all geographic boundaries, is responsible for producing at least every second breath we take, and covers 71% of the earth’s surface. For over 20 years, 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.
