Did you know that there is a network of volunteers who passionately defend our oceans, waves and beaches? Well there is! And the Surfrider Foundation trains these local community leaders on how to stop bad things from happening to our coasts. But we need your help to train the next generation of leaders by supporting our campaign to fund our annual training for 25 chapters through the Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes.
If 500 people chip in just $20 for this campaign, our chapter leaders will learn how to:
Stop plastic pollution from entering our waterways and ocean.
Help protect beach access for the the public.
Bring people together in their communities to clean up our beaches.
That's over 2000 miles of coastline you will be protecting with your support of $20 or more.
Your support of this Surfrider campaign will provide our chapter volunteer leaders intensive issue training, organizing techniques, strategy sessions and information sharing. Consider this: each year Surfrider volunteers provide $80,000 of in-kind time annually in leading coastal conservation efforts. Your $20 contribution to this campaign is an amazing investment-$4000 return on investment. Isn't that work your support today?
100% of your donation goes to train a volunteer.
