The Founders’ Club

Join our giving club for individuals who are willing to make a multi-year commitment to UKSA that will have a lasting impact.

UKSA is at the forefront of using the power of the sea to give a brighter future to children and young people. We passionately believe in the transformative nature that this can have, and we want to make it available to as many young people as we can.

The completion of our Sea.Change building was the first step in expanding our reach, enabling more students to undertake our inspiring programmes. We aim to increase diversity in the maritime sector through our vital work with harder to reach children and young people. We know that this won’t happen overnight and the only way to change the lives of those that need it most is through sustained funding and investment in our future.

We are sincerely grateful to our members for their generous support.
