Fiscal Sponsorship

Since 1995 CMSF has worked to protect the state’s coastal ecosystems while strengthening coastal resilience in the face of population growth, urban and industrial uses, climate change, and historic overfishing. We believe our work is unparalleled and our interdisciplinary team provides an urgent and unique approach to protecting California's ocean resources by working across land, watershed, and coastal ecosystems.  We work with local communities, government partners, and other NGOs to implement practical and effective solutions while reaching diverse audiences. 

CMSF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides our tax-exemption and associated benefits to select groups aligned with our mission of advancing the understanding and stewardship of ocean resources.  Our partners include university researchers, local communities, government partners, and other NGOs focused on implementing practical and effective solutions that lessen human impacts on our environment, and increase stewardship of our state’s natural resources.
