Fueling Underwater Discoveries

HISTORY and MISSION

OceanGate Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organized in the State of Arizona in 2010.

We were founded by entrepreneurs with a passion for ocean exploration who wanted to expand our understanding of the deep ocean.

Our mission is to allow more opportunities for more researchers on more expeditions.

We do this by providing supplemental financial support to augment primary research grants that enables scientists to efficiently conduct additional research on existing expeditions.
