Swenson Family Foundation
Jim and Sue Swenson have been outstandingly loyal supporters of the Ocean Institute for nearly two decades. From the bottom of their hearts, Jim and Sue believe in the mission of the Ocean Institute and do everything they can to support the work we do with children from throughout Southern California. They provide annual funding to bring hundreds of underserved students to programs at the Institute through our Adopt A Class program. They gave the leadership gift to build our state-of-the-art facility in 2001. They helped us expand our fleet of floating classrooms by funding our purchase of the Spirit of Dana Point. They are strengthening our nascent endowment program with major gifts every year. As a Board member, Jim also inspires fellow members to give and shows leadership through his sincere commitment to the Ocean Institute.
