OceansWide is possible thanks to friends like YOU!
OceansWide (a 501-C-3 Nonprofit) is dedicated to supporting science and educaton around the world. OceansWide educational programs are supported through contracts created with partnering institutions and donations from our supporters. The income generated through these contracts goes directly into the educational programs. There are several ways you can help too!
The many educational programs are only possible because of the amazing support we receive from our community members and individuals who are committed to saving the beautiful ocean environment that is our backyard in Coastal Maine. Financial donations in any amount are greatly appreciated, and are fully tax-deductible.
Donate a Scholarship
Sponsoring a camper is a great way to help out a student in need. Many families have tight budgets, and your contribution can make all the difference for a child who couldn't otherwise attend Summer Camp! Donations can be made as one-time sum or a small monthly repeating donation. Sponsorship in any amount is greatly appreciated, and is tax deductible.
Do you have retired equipment that we might find useful? OceansWide is happy to consider accepting usable SCUBA, marine safety, boating equipment and other dive-related things that may be sitting unused in your house and/or business. Please contact Buzz Scott, President of OceansWide, if you have something you would like to donate. All donations are tax-deductible.
Many employers will match funds donated to non-profit organizations by their employees. If you'd like your contribution to OceansWide programs to go twice as far, talk to your organization about Employer Matching.
Corporate & Business Partners
Is your company intersted in giving back to the community and helping improve the coast of Maine? One way is to become a corporate/business partner with OceansWide.
