Give Through a
Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable giving vehicle that allows philanthropically inclined individuals, and corporations to make a charitable contribution, and recommend grants from the fund over time. It’s an opportunity to put your charitable dollars to work. Thus, you have flexibility to tailor your philanthropic giving in easy, cost-effective ways.
Grants made to the FCOLC can be designated for use wherever the need is greatest or for a specific program matching your areas of interest, such as coral reef restoration, saving sea turtles & women empowerment, or and state of the art deep sea exploration and research.
How to recommend a gift to the FCOLC
Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
Include the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center’s EIN #81-1548424.
Indicate whether your gift is unrestricted or designated to a specific cause.
You can also designate The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center as a beneficiary for your donor advised fund.

Making a gift of stock in support of our marine restoration programs is simple and offers valuable financial benefits. You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds and the total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible. To be eligible for a charitable deduction for a tax year, donations of stock need to be received by the end of the year.
Because different assets take different amounts of time to be transferred, you should initiate your transactions as early as possible. We recommend you notify us before a transfer is appreciated, as stock may occasionally be transferred without the name of the donor, and we wish to acknowledge your gift.
If you have questions about stock gifts or our capacity to accept a non-standard stock gift,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-676-5500.
Fund a Gift
Matching Challenge for Ocean Protectors
At various times of the year the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center will be promoting a Gift Matching Challenge to support one or more of our restoration programs. Donors can assist the FCOLC in raising additional dollars by offering to MATCH donations up to a set dollar amount, and within a specific time. Your gift challenge can be set to double or triple the amount raised by all donors, resulting in a greater impact for the OLC!
Leave a legacy for protecting our oceans. A legacy gift is a planned future gift that designates some part of an individual's estate as a donation to a nonprofit. It enables individuals to create a powerful philanthropic legacy by making a direct impact on the causes important to them. Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit the OLC after your lifetime, contact us at 888-676-5500 or email@example.com. If you already have a will, a quick call to your attorney is all you’ll need to add a charitable gift.
