Become a Corporate Partner
Sea-Changers enables businesses to deliver their corporate social responsibility and to demonstrate care for the marine environment through charitable giving.
We make it easy for those with a concern for the sea, and its future, to give something back.
Simple charitable giving
The businesses we work with raise money for our grant fund in a variety of ways.
For some, this is offering customers the chance to make a donation at the point of sale; for others, it may be making regular donations based on a percentage of online sales.
Whatever the mechanism, we work with our partners to make donating and raising money a simple process. And the money raised is used to fund our grant giving process.
We are supported by a range of partners who each fundraise for us in the way that suits them best.
We will work with you every step of the way to make sure we set up a partnership arrangement and fundraising process that works for your business model and is as easy to implement as possible.
Get in touch and we can discuss what might work best for you.
An easy decision to make
Becoming a Sea-Changers business partner could not be simpler:
It’s a great message to your customers and it’s a story we do our best to share as widely as we can.
We make sure the money goes to marine conservation projects that will make a real impact on the UK’s seas and shores.
We follow best practice guidelines on charity fundraising so that every penny you raise or donate will be used wisely.
Supporters welcome too

Our Existing Partners
In 2020, Sea-Changers formed an exciting new partnership with Bunzl plc to sponsor the Coastal Fountain Fund.
The programme provides funding to groups and organisations who wish to install water bottle refill fountains on UK beaches or other coastal sites. The fund aims to tackle the increasing problem of plastic bottles being left as marine litter, causing a negative impact to the marine environment and marine species.
Extrême Ice Cream Brand has given funding to Sea-Changers to set up the 'Tackling Ocean Plastics Fund', which will support groups and organisations around the UK who wish to run marine conservation projects aimed at tackling the issue of plastics. This will operate as part of our Main Grant Fund.
The programme aims to address the increasing problem of plastics that are damaging the marine environment and the species that call it home. The new fund is supported by Extrême Ice Cream as part of their response to the plastic challenge.
Sea Change Wine
‘Sea Change’, a new wine range from 10 International, was just launched with a focus on modern-day scourge of plastic pollution in our oceans.
Sea Change aims to raise awareness while making a practical difference, both through its use of environmentally conscious packaging, and by donating 25 cents (Euro) from the sale of every bottle to several marine conservation causes, including Sea-Changers.
Port & Lemon
Port & Lemon became a Sea-Changers partner in 2018.
Port & Lemon design home items, gifts and cards that quirkily mix nostalgia and wit inspired by the sea. Our supporters can raise money every time they spend over £10 on the Port and Lemon website by using the code SEACHANGERS at checkout. This saves the customer 10% on their basket total and Port and Lemon will generously donate 10% of the sale price to Sea-Changers.
Hebridean Island Cruises
In April 2012, Hebridean Island Cruises became the first UK cruise company to allow their guests to make a significant contribution towards marine conservation. They committed to asking their customers for a recommended donation of £20 when each booking is made (guests can donate more, if they prefer).
Hebridean Island Cruises’ guests have donated nearly £27,000 to support marine conservation work in the UK.
Boat Share Finder
BoatShareFinder.com is a portal bringing together existing boat owners and aspiring boat owners to buy and sell shares in all types of vessels quickly and easily. Instead of charging for this service, they ask their customers to do a simple but generous thing: make a donation based on what they feel the service is worth.
Since 2015, Boat Share Finder has raised over £4,000 for Sea-Changers.
Mike's Dive Store
Mike’s Dive Store signed up to partner with Sea-Changers in 2015. Mike’s, a leading and long established diving retailer, donates 1% of the profits from online sales to the charity. Customers are also invited to match the company’s generosity and make their own donations too.
Mike’s Dive Store has donated over £10,000 to Sea-Changers. In 2018, Mike's sister company, Mike's Dive Cameras, also joined the fundraising partnership.
Love Home Swap
To celebrate World Oceans Day 2021 global home swapping platform Love Home Swap partnered with Sea-Changers to create home swaps for hermit crabs! With a focus on raising awareness and encouraging holidaymakers to keep beaches clean, they are listing crustacean cribs on their platform, and asking their members to support this vital cause. In addition, Love Home Swap is donating $2,000 to Sea-Changers to aid their vision of creating a world in which the seas and shores are healthy, and marine species are protected.
Maggie Cochran Art
Maggie Cochran is a contemporary landscape artist, inspired by the UK’s coast and shores. Maggie's partnership with Sea-Changers will include her donating a piece of art that Sea-Changers will auction.
All money raised from the art auction will go into our marine conservation grants programme, which will enable vital marine conservation initiatives to take place often led by grassroots and community projects.
Coveted for their contemporary and sustainable collections made for everyday living, homeware and lifestyle brand LIGA draw their inspiration from the nature which surrounds them. A family run business, LIGA have generously committed to donate 1% of sales from their online store - Loveliga.co.uk
Harbour Hounds partnered with Sea-Changers in 2020. They provide products for beach-loving, water-worshipping dogs and owners who are looking for stylish and practical accessories that help them enjoy the great outdoors.
Dog lovers can now raise money for Sea-Changers every time they buy a limited-edition EM Tick-Off Dog Necklace. Harbour Hounds will donate 10% from each sale of the necklace to Sea-Changers.
In 2016, water filtration bottle company Water-to-Go joined us as partners, providing an opportunity for people to ensure they have safe drinking water, wherever they are in the world, while also doing their part for healthier oceans.
Buying a Water-to-Go bottle reduces the need to buy bottled mineral water, thus reducing plastic waste. Shoppers get a 15% discount on every Water-to-Go order and 15% of the purchase is donated to us.
MRT, the manufacturer and distributor of global leading man overboard solutions is to set up a new innovation fund, from 2021, to be run by Sea-Changers.
The new innovation fund will specifically seek to encourage the development of innovative projects and solutions to tackle and mitigate marine conservation challenges such as pollution, climate change and unsustainable fishing practices.
Author Lucy Munday has partnered with Sea-Changers as part of a grassroots collaboration between the charity and Lucy’s first self-published children’s picture book, Maya in the Rubbish Sea.
The book focuses on ocean pollution and conservation and features Maya and her friend Finn, a talking parrotfish.
