a community taking action for the ocean

Each and every day, Sailors for the Sea is grateful to those who make our mission a reality.

Our supporters have made so much possible this year.

  • 14 sailing centers affected by Hurricane Sandy given water filtration systems that reduce their usage of disposable water bottles
  • Platinum Level Clean Regattas Certification, requiring 81 goals of sustainability was introduced, and achieved by the 34th America’s Cup and the Atlantic Cup
  • 5 million people reached with a public service announcement encouraging us all to leave No Trash No Trail No Trace
  • The 34th America’s Cup was the largest sporting event in the world to eliminate single use disposable water bottles
  • 156 sailing events reduced their environmental impact through participating in the Clean Regattas program
  • Rainy Day Kits were used to educate children about marine ecology in 27 states and 12 countries

What does this mean?

Less plastic, a knowledgeable public, and a new generation of engaged ocean stewards.

As we look towards the future, we recognize that there is still so much more to be done. Our ocean needs guardians and your support makes a difference. By donating to Sailors for the Sea, you join a community taking action for the ocean.

New Ways to Give

This years’ season of giving is being innovated by movements like #GivingTuesday, AmazonSmile and tinyGive. Their overarching message is clear: every action counts, and every dollar matters.

#GivingTuesday is a movement, initiated by the UN Foundation and the 92nd Street Y. In the same way that retail stores have Black Friday, the giving community comes together for #GivingTuesday. To participate, make a contribution to your favorite Charity on December 3rd, and share it on social media.

AmazonSmile allows you to purchase any eligible product on Amazon and when you shop on the organization of your choice will receive .5% of the purchase price. To make Sailors for the Sea your charity of choice: click here.

tinyGive is an way to share your support and donate to, your favorite charity on Twitter. They facilitate simple and meaningful acts of kindness. Just tweet, “Hey @sailorsforsea I love your work! Here’s $10, keep it up! #tinygive”

Thank you for supporting us and being a part of our vision for a healthier ocean!
