Oceans 5 makes direct grants, leverages matching grants, provides in-kind services and shares strategic guidance – all to support grantees. They focus on projects and campaigns to constrain overfishing and to establish marine reserves. Oceans 5 are inspired by projects that are significant and strategic, particularly if they provide tangible and lasting benefits to the world’s oceans. They prefer projects that engage multiple organizations working toward common objectives over discrete periods of time.
Oceans 5 is an international funders collaborative comprised of Partners and Members who help identify, assess and approve projects for investment. They also remain engaged in project oversight and implementation. The collaborative is a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
