The PADI Foundation is an IRC Section 501 (c)(3) public non-profit, tax exempt organisation. It encourages and supports underwater science, environmental projects, and education. It funds and assists worthwhile projects that enrich mankind’s understanding of the aquatic environment and encourage sensitivity to and protection of the delicate ecological balance of underwater life. The Foundation also funds worthwhile projects to increase understanding of sport diving physics and physiology that benefit the general diving public and add to the scientific understanding of man’s relationship and ability to survive in the underwater environment.
The Foundation will fund and assist worthwhile projects that either:
- Enrich mankind’s understanding of aquatic environments and encourage sensitivity to and protection of ecosystems.
- Increase understanding of sport diving physics and physiology that will benefit the general diving public and add to the scientific understanding of man’s relationship and ability to survive in the underwater environment.
- Improve understanding of, and response to, hazards to humans and ecosystems related to climate change in coastal and ocean environments.
Grants are given to non-profit organisations and individuals.
Actions can take place worldwide (maritime regions mainly).
Each year, the Foundation will consider proposals with budgets up to $12,000 although the average for proposals will be on the order $5,000 to $10,000 (diving physiology proposals related to diver safety with budgets larger than $12,000 will be considered). The Foundation will generally not fund overhead or other indirect expenses. They receive around 400 applications and fund app. 40 projects.
All applications must be submitted beginning November 1, 2022 and no later than January 15, 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by May 1, 2023 and funds will be disbursed shortly thereafter.
