Thank you, The Nicholas Endowment

The Ocean Institute would like to thank The Nicholas Endowment for their continued support throughout the past 10 years. Since 2006, The Nicholas Endowment has given more than $1 million to the Ocean Institute in support of our educational programs and facilities, helping us provide ocean education to students, teachers, and most recently the general public at-large.

Thank you for Supporting the 32nd Annual Ocean Institute Tall Ships Festival

The Ocean Institute was again amazed by the “waves of impact” that our generous donors, sponsors and community supporters made in the success of our 2016 Tall Ships Festival! Our presenting sponsor, Toshiba of America Business Solutions, provided the foundation of support for a weekend of fun and education for over 10,000 visitors. We are so appreciative of Toshiba as well as our other sponsors, without whom we could not have had such a great festival!
