"We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came." -John F. Kennedy

According to Charity Navigator, only about 3% of total charitable giving in the U.S. goes to help environmental causes. By supporting our work, you will help us develop breakthrough solutions in four key environmental areas:


Advancing circular economy solutions to end ocean plastic pollution. We do this by fostering global collaborations, advancing science, and catalyzing circular economy solutions for plastics.


Protecting bird species that are sentinels of environmental quality, helping to curb the loss of ~3 billion birds in North America in the last 50 years. We do this by supporting market-based programs that solve the root causes of the issue.


Shifting the fundamental mindset of the philanthropy world to keep environmental health at the core of our decisions and actions. We do this by supporting the development of behavior change tools and educational resources.


Revitalizing vital marine ecosystems such as coral reefs and seagrasses, which are the nurseries of the ocean. We do this by bringing together stakeholders to figure out the underlying causes of the problem and then pilot new approaches.  

Join us in highlighting the vital importance of the environment so people and nature thrive!

90% of funds contributed to Howell Conservation Fund are spent directly on conservation programs.

*The 10% overhead rate is our target in non-COVID years.  Due to the global impacts of the pandemic in 2020 – 2021 and the start-up nature of the organization, e.g. limited ability to travel for conservation projects and internal initiatives such as our website launch, the actual overhead percentage for 2020 and 2021 is higher than our target rate.
