Founder’s Circle

Gift amount: Minimum donation of $2,500/year for 5 years

Founder’s Circle members are the lifeboat of We Are Ocean. Through the generous donations of our Founder’s Circle, we are able to navigate the choppy waters of building We Are Ocean, and grow the organization to a national force that has already changed the lives of thousands of cancer survivors and their loved ones.

Founder’s Circle gifts are applied directly to our mission of uniting people in the fight against cancer, and improving the quality of life for patients and survivors.

The Founder’s Circle is a unique opportunity that is limited to the first 100 people to join. Founder’s Circle members receive several distinctions, including:

  • Special recognition on the “Founding Wall” at the We Are Ocean headquarters, located in Newport Beach, CA
  • Exclusive invitations to We Are Ocean events, including the “Founder’s Circle Weekend,” a special annual event that allows us to thank you for helping us continue to do the work we do, while giving you the opportunity to meet, and interact with, We Are Ocean executives and special guests.
  • Annual briefings from We Are Ocean President and Founder Jack Marshall Shimko, and the Board of Directors
  • Acknowledgment on the We Are Ocean website, and in the annual report.
