Partner With Us
We apply our years of expertise, through strategic partnerships and diverse initiatives, to make your ocean vision real. There is no “one size fits all” strategy—we tailor each of our partnerships to suit.
Using your goals and objectives, we identify and evaluate the most effective marine conservation projects that meet those goals. Support from our partners also facilitates our own programmatic initiatives, to address ocean acidification, plastic pollution, ocean literacy and coastal resilience in local communities across the globe.
Join the effort to protect our world ocean and partner with The Ocean Foundation today! We are also part of 1% for the Planet.
If you recognize the value of investing resources in the ocean, or want a platform for your corporate community to participate in, we can work together on strategic 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 different levels to restore and protect our ocean.
Out of respect for our current partners, and to maintain the integrity of our partnership alignment standards, use of The Ocean Foundation’s Trademarked name or marks to reference partnership, a portion of proceeds donation, collaborative product, or any commercial program is prohibited without explicit approval.
