1. Donate your time by becoming a volunteer or committee member
There are many volunteer positions available and we look to fill our committee positions from our pool of dedicated volunteers.
2. Donate needed equipment or materials for our program areas
We are always in need of additional equipment to expand or improve our operations. Contact us for our latest equipment needs.
3. Make a monetary donation
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, which means your donation in most cases is a tax deduction.
We currently accept donations through Paypal or through the mail (check only please). No donation is too small, any amount will help us accomplish our mission and expand our base of public support.

4. Purchase your marine aquarium books through the Reef Stewardship Foundaton reading list
The Foundation has compiled a recommended reading list for background information on ocean literacy, coral reefs and useful information on breeding marine invertebrates in captivity. You can purchase the books through the Foundation's Recommended Reading List and a portion of the sale will be returned to support the Foundation at no extra cost to you.
5. Purchase your very own Reef Stewardship Breeder's journal or coffee mug
We will soon have a page where you can purchase Reef Stewardship Foundation logo items.
6. Donate or purchase livestock to support breeding efforts
The Foundation will frequently accept livestock donations to start new breeding efforts and supports our Breeder community through a broodstock, materials, and equipment exchange in the Project DIBS community. Your donation or purchase will help support our Breeder network and allow it to continue to grow, further reducing the need for wild collection.
7. Offer to help promote the Foundation on your website or in your store
You can contact us to inquire about how we can work together for mutual benefit. There are several ways we can arrange advertisements that benefit everyone involved.
8. Share your knowledge on the discussion forums
Until recently there was no organized way for people interested in breeding invertebrates or fish to to talk freely about what they have learned. Now that we can gather as a community, we should share both our successes and failures through the Project DIBS community forums.
9. Spread the word
Helping reduce our impact on coral reefs can only be accomplished through a large community. Once you have found the Reef Stewarship Foundation, spread the word. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, favorite teacher, fellow hobbyists, etc. The more people we get working together, the easier it will be to come up with solutions.
10. Think of number 10
The Reef Stewardship Foundation was founded on the idea that no one person knows everything, everybody has something to contribute. We are always looking for suggestions on how to improve the Foundation in ways our current community has not suggested. Send us your ideas!
