By supporting the 1 OCEAN Foundation, you are committing yourself to a real environmental and educational cause in the service of tomorrow's ocean. Supporting the 1 OCEAN Foundation means joining a community committed to the Ocean. 

Whether you are a company or an individual, we offer several support formats so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs.

The 1 OCEAN Foundation is "sheltered" by the CNRS Foundation and has the same attributes as a recognized public utility foundation. For donors in Europe and the United States, you can also benefit from tax advantages in your own country.

COMPANIES - Make a donation

As a company, if you make a donation to the 1 Ocean Foundation, you can benefit from a tax reduction of 60% of the amount of your donation, up to a limit of 0.5% of sales excluding VAT, which can be carried forward to the next 5 financial years*. 

The CNRS Foundation has also forged links through TGE (Transnational Giving Europe) to enable European donors to benefit from tax breaks in their own countries.

Sponsorship of competence and content relay

Within the framework of a sponsorship agreement, you can support us in the form of skills sponsorship, by making your employees available to support us in our missions (graphic design, consulting, writing, etc.).

Your support can also take the form of relaying our news and events to your network. Our mission is to spread knowledge of the Ocean to as many people as possible, and you can help us achieve this goal.


By passing on part of your estate to the 1 Ocean Foundation, you are making the choice to offer future generations a healthy ocean and planet. 

By choosing to name 1 Ocean Foundation as a legatee in your will, we will inherit the property you have chosen to leave us (property, money, movables, etc.) upon your death. You can also choose to make a donation during your lifetime.

INDIVIDUALS - One-time or regular donation

Cach donation counts! Give when you can and when you want to with a one-time donation.

Regular donations are essential to allow us to anticipate our expenses and to take sustainable actions for the Ocean.

By making a donation, you benefit from tax reductions of up to 66%, within the limit of 20% of taxable income for IRPP (Impôt sur le Revenu Pour les Particuliers).
