11th Hour Racing
Grants starting at $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for environmental sustainability initiatives to improve ocean health. Funding is intended to support innovative projects that meet challenges faced by the marine and sailing industries. Eligible projects will promote the adoption of clean technologies, ocean stewardship, and the reduction of ocean pollution.
Natural advocates are engaged for the oceans and waterways that rely on the health of these ecosystems for their livelihood and recreation. 11th Hour Racing vision for the future is one where the oceans are cleaner and healthier because sailors and coastal communities act as strong ocean stewards working to improve and protect our oceans. This includes engaging in and encouraging the development of sustainable practices and technology ranging from increased use of renewable energy, a reduction of waste and plastics going into both landfills and the ocean, and improved water quality nearshore and offshore.
11th Hour Racing is committed to mobilizing the sailing and marine communities to create systemic change to restore ocean health. Fostering environmentally sustainable practices on and off the water is critical, and requires commitment across many sectors, including industry, research, nonprofits, and the marine community. Recognizing the unique platform offered by the sailing and marine industries, we see the opportunity to advance innovative practices, promote sustainable initiatives, and develop new ways to use resources in a more responsible manner. 11th Hour Racing also seeks to facilitate more responsible uses of energy and resources among the private sector, governments, and individuals.
11th Hour Racing seeks to advance innovative projects that improve the health of our oceans and address the dynamic environmental challenges facing the sailing and coastal communities. Eligible proposals are those that align with 11th Hour Racing’s program strategy to advance one or more of our program’s focus areas:
