A special group of patrons support the Blue Mind Fund financially and with their trust in our innovative and highly collaborative work with several leading non-profit organizations, a wide range of international students, and businesses across many sectors. All leading to a bigger, wider, stronger blue movement for wild, healthy oceans and waterways. This "sea star" approach, based in building diverse and unexpected relationships, generating new and needed understanding, and sharing both as widely and freely as possible wouldn't be possible without the generosity and steady committment of the Blue Mind Angels.
By making a monthly recurring contribution of any size to support The Blue MInd Fund you allow us to remain independent, practice artful collaboration, advocate for wild waters, and passionately communicate in a time when new ideas and the freedom to express them are sorely needed.
Beyond The Blue Mind Fund, J. continues to work on behalf of sea turtles and aquatic wildlife, collaborating with and advising many organizations to help make oceans and waterways safer and working with coastal communities and grassroots organizations around the world.
Since the launch of the New York Times bestseller Blue MInd Dr. Nichols has given nearly 200 keynote addresses and talks, 90% of which were pro bono. The Blue Mind Fund makes that possible.
Wherever he goes Dr. Nichols also constantly mentors and supports the next generation of leaders, both informally and formally, as a member of graduate student committees and as an advisor to numerous educational programs. The Blue Mind Fund makes this important work with young conservation leaders possible.
J's a science advisor and a board member for many leading ocean, conservation, and education organizations. He is committed to building a stronger, smarter, better connected, and more effective environmental movement.
This atypical style of innovation, sharing and collaboration requires a special group of supporters as it doesn't fit neatly in traditional funding boxes and categories.
By now you're aware that YOU can be part of The Blue MInd Angels tribe, working hard and collaborating globally for the ocean, by making a recurring monthly pledge of any size.
You'll enjoy early access to new ideas, research, gatherings, and media as well as an invitation to the annual Blue Mind Summits
Deep Blue Angels who make a recurring monthly donation of $100 or more will get a bronze wave buckle made by sculptor Joshua Hoy.
