Pew is delighted to be participating in the second Our Ocean conference, on October 5-6 in Valparaíso, Chile, which will bring together leaders from government, academia, and advocacy organizations who share a common goal—to ensure our ocean remains healthy and vibrant for years to come. The conference will address many issues on which Pew is working including sustainable fisheries, marine protected areas, and international governance of the high seas. Our partnership with the Bertarelli Foundation to create a marine park around Easter Island, off the coast of Chile, will be highlighted at the conference. Prince Albert II of Monaco, whose foundation is partnering with Pew to create a series of marine protected areas in the Canadian Arctic, will also participate in the event.
Pew welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with individual philanthropists and foundations. For more than six decades, Pew has developed creative ideas and taken calculated risks—leading to policies that have improved people’s lives in tangible ways around the globe. Our experience has taught us that while public-spirited individuals and organizations can develop lasting solutions to the great challenges facing the world, they can achieve even greater success when they come together, share knowledge and leverage resources.
We invite donors to work alongside us on the projects they choose to support. Philanthropists can decide to fund a project directly, pool funds in a limited partnership such as Global Ocean Legacy or participate in a consortium. Donors may also choose Pew as a funding platform from which to pursue their own philanthropic goals using our planning and evaluation expertise to guide and ensure maximum return on investment.
Using Your Philanthropic Investment Strategically
Partnering with Pew affords donors access to experts, infrastructure, and experience, and a close view of advocacy efforts at the state, federal, and international levels. Pew follows a meticulous planning and development process that relies on extensive research to frame issues and identify the most effective course of action to achieve our goals. We work hand-in-hand with donors as we conceive and execute projects. We invite you to join us.
I am humbled and delighted to be able to join forces with Pew to tackle urgent marine conservation issues. These issues require many hands on many oars, and I am more than happy to take up one of them. Carmen Lee, supporter of Global Penguin Conservation
