Please forgive the interruption of one final email from us this year. Our
nonprofit global marine conservation mission is fueled by your generous
The holiday season is our most important charitable time of year. Please consider giving a gift of any amount by December 31st,
2013 to secure a tax deduction which will be matched by our corporate partner
PADI. Your funds will go twice as far in protecting our ocean planet.
Our diver focused programs and global access are truly unique within marine
conservation and the nonprofit environmental sector. We are solution oriented
and results focused and in 2013 over 70% of our funds went directly to programs
to protect sensitive marine ecosystems and vulnerable marine animals.
This year was a pinnacle of over 20 years operations:
a) We helped to secure historic global trade protection for 8 species of
vulnerable sharks and rays including oceanic whitetips, scalloped hammerheads,
b) Our one of a kind Dive Against Debris program removed and surveyed 55,405
kgs / 122,147 lbs of marine debris. This was a greater total than 2012.
c) We secured multiple positive charity ratings for financial and
organizational efficiency and transparency. Project AWARE is listed as a 2013
Top Rated Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits.
We will appreciate and value a donation of any amount. Donations $150 and
over will receive an eco-ethical long sleeve shirt.
Together this year we’ve achieved some amazing ocean victories. Thank you!
I encourage you to make a tax deductible year end gift
to help fuel critical ocean protection campaigns in 2014.
Thank you and we wish you all the best in the New Year.
For the Ocean,
Executive Director, Project AWARE
