Sponsors & Community Partners 


Reef Sponsors

Reef Sponsors are corporations, individuals, foundations, and organizations who partner with the Coral Restoration Foundation on an annual basis to protect and restore designated restoration sites along the Florida Reef Tract—the only barrier reef system in the United States, and the third largest barrier reef system in the world.

Our Reef Sponsors provide the critical funding necessary to repopulate our oceans with threatened reef-building corals, like elkhorn and staghorn, by supporting key restoration projects. As a sponsor of Coral Restoration Foundation you can be engaged in all aspects of our work, from restoration to education to research.  We are grateful to all of our sponsors, both past and present, for their unrestricted support!

Be a part of the solution! For more information on how to become a Reef Sponsor, please contact Martha Roesler.
