Project AWARE has earned the "Best in America" Seal of Excellence from Independent Charities of America (ICA).
Based on rigorous independent review, this seal is awarded to the members of ICA that document and demonstrate annually that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the U.S. government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, one of the most selective fund drives in the world. Of the more than one million charities operating in the United States today, fewer than 1 in 500 have been awarded this seal. Thank you ICA for this recognition. It’s one more way to rest assured that your support is used effectively to protect the ocean when you donate to Project AWARE.
