This #GivingTuesday give back to your community and stand up for your local beaches and coastal waters. Improving ocean health starts with each one of us on land, that’s why we need your support. Your generous donations help us keep our beaches clean and our waters safe and accessible for all to enjoy. Whether you enjoy surfing, sailing, eating fresh seafood or lounging on your favorite beach, we all have a stake in a healthy ocean. When you give to COA you are investing in the next generation of ocean stewards who will continue to treasure and take care of our Ocean State.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Collect more than 115,000 pounds of debris 

Monitor 41 watershed locations for safe water quality

Host over 640 coastal cleanups 

Record 40,000 community service hours

Educate 10,000 school children 

Thank you to all of our supporters, volunteers, and citizen scientists who make our work possible!
