Changing Tides, Changing Lives

For nearly twenty years now, we have strived to bridge the gap between philanthropy to the ocean and the communities that need this funding the most. Today, marine science and marine conservation continues to be one of the most underfunded spaces.

Because the ocean currently receives less than 1% of global philanthropy every year, donors to The Ocean Foundation make a transformational difference for our planet. We deeply appreciate all that our community makes possible, including grants for conservation and technology for research, training and workshops for local stakeholders, and on the ground restoration projects with local partners.

Your contribution is invaluable for all who fight to preserve their natural resources for seafood production, tourism, and ecosystem services against the challenges like sea level rise, extreme weather, and environmental degradation.

Every dollar we raise will fund marine environments and change lives across the ocean.
