Although we offer the marine conservation programs as affordable as possible to make it available to a wide range of people, we understand that it can be difficult to get the funds together. There are a few different ways to do this.
Joining us on an expedition and need some help raising the funds? We’re partnered with EasyFundraising. You can create an account with them and list your program as your cause. Get your friends and family to sign up to the platform too and choose you as their cause. Then they (and you!) can shop online through the app (they’re partnered with loads of useful companies like Amazon, Ebay, LastMinute.com) and if they shop through EasyFundraising each time a portion of their purchase will go to your cause and help you raise money for your expedition! List your cause and start raising funds here.
We’ve found one the most effective way of fundraising is to take part in activities and raise money like this. Publicise it and generally, the more outrageous it is the more money you’ll get. Whether it’s doing a run or cutting all your hair off – every little helps.
If people do not want to donate since it is helping you go somewhere, you could do it so half of the money you raise is donated to us and you keep half to fund your trip. This has proved successful in the past. As a non-profit organisation, the money you donate will go directly to getting school equipment for the local children, sustainable fishing gear for the local fishermen and scientific equipment. We can show you exactly where your money goes.

If there’s a group of you applying for Love The Oceans marine conservation programs and you feel passionately about the cause, you can always set up your own LTO university society. If you do so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d like to be involved from the start.
Another way is by applying for grants and/or scholarships to help cover your costs. Here are some useful links below:
Youth Explorers’ Trust
The Captain Scott Society
Jack Petchey Foundation
Sir Philip Reckitt Educational Trust
Royal Society of Biology
