The Story

Match AltaSea - Our HOPE is Becoming REALITY!
 

When AltaSea issued its $25,000 challenge on December 1st, we hoped the community would match it. After raising over $120,000 in just two weeks for AltaSea youth education programs conducted with the Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI), Friends of Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and PortTech LA., we are ecstatic!

 

Thank you for helping make a difference – not only in the lives of youth who will benefit from these programs, but in the future of our ocean.

 

The year is not over yet - let's keep giving. From $10 to $10,000, every dollar counts. For example:

 

 

  • $500 donated to Los Angeles Maritime Institute will pay for a bus bringing 50 middle school students to the Reef Check Student Ocean Scientist program, where they become citizen scientists and learn the importance of preserving local reefs.
  • $600 donated to PortTech LA sends 30 students to PortTechEXPO 2016 where they receive hands-on STEM-based learning, hear about emerging clean technologies and explore career paths with entrepreneurs and maritime business leaders.
  • $1,000 donated to Friends of Cabrillo Marine Aquarium allows ten K-12 students to participate in STEAM-based education programs that teaches students about marine protected areas.

 

Whether you give to one or all, donations go directly to the organization(s) you select. Your contribution will help shape a new generation of passionate, knowledgeable ocean advocates in the Los Angeles harbor communities.
