Safina Center Endowment
The Safina Center (formerly Blue Ocean Institute) has established an endowment fund in memory of a dear friend and supporter, Dr. Eric Gilchrist. We lost this beloved friend and board member in 2011. Eric’s support for Blue Ocean Institute was steady and enthusiastic for many years and has continued beyond his passing. The unexpected bequest Eric made to Blue Ocean now serves as the seed for our Safina Center endowment fund. His generosity has inspired us to carry on and, as Eric put it,”to direct compassion and heart-filled work toward the living creatures of this planet.” We miss Eric and will always remember his friendship and enduring support.
