For close to forty years, Ocean Conservancy has been a leader in the environmental community, compiling an impressive list of accomplishments, from winning a federal mandate for the use of turtle excluder devices (TEDs) on shrimp trawls to creating the International Coastal Cleanup to ending overfishing of red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico, and many, many more. Over 500,000 volunteers and members play a vital role in conserving our ocean, protecting the communities that depend on its health, and caring for all the wildlife that call it home.
With the recent explosion of options for charitable giving, donors have come to expect publicly available proof of accountability when making contributions. We encourage donors to make informed giving decisions.
Ocean Conservancy's volunteer Board of Directors provides oversight and determines the direction of the organization, holding staff to the highest standards for excellence and accountability. Ocean Conservancy is a tax-exempt not-for-profit 501c(3) organization. Contributions made to Ocean Conservancy are tax deductible.
During 2010, Ocean Conservancy changed its fiscal year end from September 30 to June 30 to better match reporting to our operating cycle, thereby improving our ability to assess our financial position and manage performance.
