PADI AWARE Foundation™ Mission Hub Community Grant Program
PADI AWARE Foundation™ is committed to the development of community-led efforts to sustainably manage the world’s marine ecosystems.
The PADI AWARE Foundation’s™ Mission Hub Community Grant Program is a cornerstone initiative to accelerate participation, education, and advocacy for ocean protection. The program will provide direct financial resources to PADI Mission Hubs and community-based non-profits to address key ocean threats like climate change, marine debris, marine habitat loss, and marine species protection.
Grants will be awarded to ocean protection initiatives and projects that directly advance the PADI Blueprint for Ocean Action, in direct support of the United Nations Decade of Science for Sustainable Development. All projects must fall under one of these five program areas.
