November 21 2017


With Thanksgiving upon us and we reflect on what we are grateful for and on the state of our beaches, the Surfrider Foundation is so grateful for our dedicated staff and passionate volunteers and all they do to protect our ocean and our coasts. They truly are our heroes! And so are you. With supporters like you by our side, we tackle some of the most daunting threats to our coasts and coastal communities. 

Thanks to members like you:

We're engaged in 110 active coastal campaigns.
We've secured 34 campaign victories in 8 different states in 2017 alone.
We've won 443 coastal victories since 2006.

When it seems like there are endless challenges and threats to our beloved coasts, these victories show the magnitude of what we can do together.

As we enter the final months of 2017, Surfrider needs to fill a $500,000 budget goal, and we need every ocean enthuasist and beach lover to help us meet that goal. There are many ways to support the Surfrider Foundation -- all have an incredible impact! We hope that you consider one of these:

  • #GivingTuesday Matching Gift Challenge. There's no better day than #GivingTuesday, next Tuesday, November 28, to donate to the Surfrider Foundation. Not only will it be #GivingTuesday, but our generous parter Clif Bar will match every single dollar you donate, up to $25,000!
  • Shop AmazonSmile. When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Surfrider. It is a simple way to support Surfrider this holiday season and every time you shop on AmazonSmile!
  • Gifts of Surfrider + Bonus $50 Gift Card. For a limited time this holiday season, give the gift of Surfrider and your loved one will receive an annual membership to Surfrider ($25 value) PLUS a $50 gift code to either Billabong, Vissla or Volcom. Give $50, get a $75 value gift!
  • Support our 2017 Annual Fund. Any gift of support this year-end will help us meet our $500,000 budget goal by December 31st. 

There are many worthy organizations to support. But, your gift to the Surfrider Foundation is an investment in our coasts and our ocean that will reap the rewards for generations to come.

Above all, your support - in time or financial - means a lot to us here at Surfrider. We are forever grateful for your continued support.

Thank you.
