About this funder:
The Bonnell Cove Foundation was organized in 1989 by the Cruising Club of America to conduct research and educational activities. Initial funding for the Foundation came from the sale of a tract of waterfront land in Block Island, Rhode Island to the Block Island Conservancy for conservation purposes. George P.P. Bonnell, a charter member and former Commodore of the Club, bequeathed the land to the Club in 1959. Club members have provided additional funding.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that makes grants each year to other charitable organizations with particular emphasis in the areas of safety at sea and environmental protection.
Safety At Sea
The Foundation's grants related to safety at sea will be concentrated in three areas of particular concern to the growing number of individuals who voyage offshore in small vessels. These areas include: Boat design and construction, Navigation, and Individual safety (medical emergencies and overboard accidents)
A number of areas affecting the quality of the marine environment and those who make coastal and ocean voyages have been identified by the Foundation:
- Marine sanitation devices
- Control of oceanic and coastal water pollution
- Hazards from debris
- Coastal land conservation
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
