For 2015, we have developed a new initiative to ensure the sustainability of Clean Ocean Access and encourage program support throughout the community.  Clean Ocean Access is looking for 1000 people to step up and pledge $100 during the coming year.

We are calling it the COA1000 Plan and we need your help to make it a success.

With your gift of $100 or more, you will receive a pledge number that is exclusive to you. This will be your COA1000 number.  In January of each year, you can retain your number by reaffirming your support and renewing your donation. Your continued support will allow us to focus on the work so very important to our mission.

You’d like to donate more than $100?
Great! Feel free to make a larger gift, it allows us to do more. Please use this LINK

The health and natural beauty of our surroundings must be a priority. The COA1000 Plan will guarantee that our core programs and commitment to clean ocean access continue.  We are working hard to acquire grants and other funding that will make a vast network of related activities possible, but first we must raise funds to maintain our core programs.

Thank you!

Clean Ocean Access is a not-for-profit organization. All donations to Clean Ocean Access (COA) after February 20th 2014 are fully tax-deductible by the IRS code 501(C)3. Our federal tax exempt letter is available via this LINK.

Polar Bear Cleanup

2014_02_08_ (1)Join us at Easton’s Beach at 9AM on January 1st for a coastal cleanup to improve ocean health and beautify the coastline prior to the Polar Bear Plunge! Hot coffee provided by Empire Tea & Coffee!

Amazing results because of you!

2014_12_27_total_cleanup_resultsThis is what we’ve accomplished since COA started in 2006! We never imagined removing nearly 60,000 pounds of marine debris from our shoreline. In 2015 our monthly meeting will have a feature presentation highlighting the result of our core programs. January 28th at 630PM will showcase our CLEAN program. Living on Aquidneck Island almost guarantees that each person has a personal connection with our natural resources, whether it is enjoying a walk on the coastline, days at the beach with family or a multitude of ocean activities with your friends. Our CLEAN program is to make sure these activities can occur on a beautiful shoreline of a healthy ocean for future generations.
