Consulting and Capacity-Building for Ocean Nonprofits

We support people and organizations fighting for the oceans.

If your organization is looking to craft a powerful message, focus your vision, build a team, broadcast your story to the world, or dramatically improve your fundraising, we can help.

We know that far too many nonprofits struggle and never achieve the dreams of their founders.  Many small nonprofits just barely hanging on, never reaching their potential.  After a while, the fun is gone.  When the hard work doesn't pay off, it's natural to lose enthusiasm and let things slip. 


It doesn't have to be that way.  There is a way to make nonprofits work.  And it all starts with marketing - communicating your story to the world.
