You Can Make A Real, Measureable Difference

As a San Diegan you know: our water defines us. It powers our economy and makes life in San Diego something special. Through 20 years of protecting and restoring San Diego County's fishable, swimmable, drinkable water, we've honed our strategy for making big things happen.

Our model squeezes more clean water out of every dollar donated and every minute volunteered.

Our data-driven advocacy, targeted education and legal action truly moves the needle. With volunteer power, a love of big ideas and a shoestring budget, we have done things like:

  • Negotiate a $15-million cleanup of San Diego Bay, with polluters footing the bill
  • Mandate county upgrades to end San Diego's "Sewage-Spill-A-Day" reputation, reducing spills by 90 percent
  • Harness volunteer power to remove over a million pounds of trash from our beaches and monitor our monthly water health
  • Bring environmental science education to 160 schools and counting

Every dollar shared with San Diego Coastkeeper makes more change happen.

As we tackle the biggest threats to our water's future, now is a more powerful time to donate than ever.

  • Did you know that 90% of San Diego County waterways are under a state order for cleanup?
  • Or that industrial water pollution, by and large, is reported but never addressed?

Let's do something about it.

Clean water matters, and right now, it needs our help. You can make a real, measureable difference. Join us to take a stand for San Diego County's most valuable resource: our fishable, swimmable, drinkable water.
