We are, therefore, committed to supporting and promoting healthy and vibrant marine habitats and sustainable fisheries, as well as to connecting future generations to the water through our youth recreation and education initiatives.

BlueFuture Grants

West Marine offers one BlueFuture grant cycle each year that benefits nonprofit organizations dedicated to youth waterlife recreation and education. Our grants provide much-needed funds so these valuable, community-based organizations may provide scholarships, purchase new equipment, maintain staff, add programs and do so much more.
