Cause Marketing

Today more than ever, consumers look for products that not only meet their immediate needs, but also serve a greater purpose by supporting nonprofit organizations and their missions. Many sign up for programs where a percentage of their spending dollar can "Pay It Forward" to conservation, education, and humanitarian organizations. Merchandisers, restaurants, and service companies are looking for ways to attract this audience of shoppers interested in thoughtful partnerships and the positive impact their purchase can have, particularly because they tend to become loyal customers. With REEF's Cause Marketing Program, you have the ability to promote your business while supporting REEF's worldwide marine conservation programs.

Your business can help

By registering in REEF's Cause Marketing Program, you commit to donating to REEF-a set amount annually, a percentage of sales quarterly, or anything in between. We'll help you communicate your support and impact. And together, we will educate and empower consumers that care about our environment.

Doing good is good for business

Studies show that more than 90 percent of consumers expressed they would switch to a brand supporting a good cause, and nearly 50 percent would pay extra for products and services from companies committed to positive social and environmental impact. By supporting REEF and the work that we do, you show your customers and employees that your company is committed to making a positive difference in the world.

Helping you tell the story

REEF Cause Marketing participants will receive the "REEF Cause Marketing Toolkit" and other resources, including facts about the marine environments, photos, videos, and graphics. We will add your business to our Shop to Support page and recognize your business through thankful messaging through our communication channels.

Let's work together to protect biodiversity and marine life worldwide
