Our Philanthropic Priorities
FAU Harbor Branch Executive Director’s Fund
Unrestricted gifts to the FAU Harbor Branch Executive Director’s Fund are particularly powerful tools in addressing the most urgent priorities of the Institute and our oceans. Your investment supports vital needs ranging from seed funding for research projects and technology upgrades to emergency student support.
Marine Ecosystem Conservation
From the seagrass meadows of the Indian River Lagoon to the coral reefs of the Atlantic Ocean, FAU Harbor Branch researchers are working to better understand and conserve critical marine ecosystems and the plants and animals that live there.
Ocean Health: Human Health
For decades, our scientists have looked to the ocean to discover new treatments for life-threatening diseases, while also seeking to understand how environmental toxins can impact human health.
Aquaculture Innovation and Food Security
To meet the needs of a growing population, our researchers are working to advance the aquaculture industry by developing techniques that help increase the sustainable production of safe, high-quality seafood.
Engineering advanced technologies is the foundation upon which FAU Harbor Branch was built and continues to serve as the overarching solution to better understanding our coastal and ocean environments.
Marine Science Education
From budding high-school marine scientists to newly graduated Ph.D.’s, FAU Harbor Branch is dedicated to educating the next generation of scientists by providing the opportunity to study at a world-renowned oceanographic institute.
Community Outreach and Engagement
Through our Mission: Ocean Discovery outreach programs, FAU Harbor Branch aims to increase the presence, accessibility, and value of science, inspiring the next generation of researchers and ocean stewards.
