Youth Program Grants Available From West Marine’s Blue Future Fund

West Marine has initiated a Blue Future Fund to support healthy oceans and to help support boating and fishing non-profit organizations.  Read more from West Marine below and forms for both grant applications or donations are available below as well.

Marine conservation. Sustainable fisheries. Youth boating.

We are one of the world’s largest marine retailers. Helping others recreate on and around the water is our passion, our joy and our mission. We are, therefore, committed to supporting and promoting healthy and vibrant marine habitats and sustainable fisheries. We are also committed to establishing a connection to and appreciation of the water for future generations through our youth boating initiatives.

We’re giving back.

The BlueFuture® Fund’s first grants will be made in the coming months to youth boating and fishing non-profit organizations. And we need your help! Check back on June 8, World Oceans Day to learn how you can nominate the youth boating and fishing organization of your choice to receive BlueFuture® Fund support.
