Sponsorship program

Coral Restoration Foundation Sponsors are corporations, individuals, foundations, and organisations who partner with the Coral Restoration Foundation Curacao on an annual basis to protect and restore designated restoration sites along the Curacao coast line.

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

Positive media support
As a sponsor, you will receive positive media attention from your association with our organisation including recognition on our website and the opportunity to out-plant corals with CRF staff.
