Ocean Academy Fund– A New Fund to Support and Protect the Ocean

The Galápagos Islands, Ecuador. 2013.

The current global crisis highlighted the urgency needed to find effective solutions to the climate crisis before it is too late. Given the magnitude of the challenge, we need to innovate and collaborate further.

The Ocean Academy Fund is a donor-directed fund supporting TBA21–Academy’s program, managed by Fondation Philanthropia. In line with its fund mission, independent board, and transparent accounting, it provides assurance to donors that 100% of contributions received are deployed directly to the purpose intended. 

​The goal is as simple as it is ambitious: alongside our established activities at TBA21–Academy, we are launching a sandbox for collaboration, to achieve a step-change in ocean conservation, regeneration initiatives, and partnerships worldwide.

Change thrives on collaboration. Join the effort so we can rise to the challenge.
Created by Lombard Odier, Fondation Philanthropia is recognized as a public-benefit foundation in Switzerland. The fund facilitates tax-efficient giving from multiple jurisdictions, including a 5o1(c)3 fiscal sponsorship for donations from the US.
