We believe in the power of technological ingenuity and collective behavior change to overcome the environmental impact of human-made systems. From composting to ghost gear removal to preventing plastic pollution through the elimination of single-use plastic, the capacity for systematic change that leads to significant results has untapped potential.
Our grant giving program includes community campaigns that shift to more sustainable practices, as well as technologies that reduce the environmental footprint of coastal communities, sailing-related activities, and the maritime industry. Activities may involve improving practices regarding plastic pollution prevention or food waste, such as composting, techniques that improve water quality, environmentally responsible vessel disposal methods, or construction materials or processes. We do not invest in proven technologies or support offshore marine debris clean-ups or advertising.
