Leadership & Giving Circles

Leadership Giving

We seek philanthropically minded people who care about ocean science and its role in creating a sustainable future for the only planet we have to call home.

Partner with us

Partner with us by investing your time, talent, and resources in research that is critical to understanding some of the most pressing issues of our time: ocean and climate change, the ocean twilight zone, sustainability and stewardship of our resources, human impacts, and the future of ocean robotics and discovery. Our researchers and engineers’ discoveries on the water or in the lab bring us closer to understanding this very complicated blue planet. Ocean knowledge is the first step towards informed decision-making and preservation – join us!

Five great ways to get involved. Read on below.
