The Ocean Cleanup has a registered foundation in the Netherlands (Stichting The Ocean Cleanup). For US donors, you can donate to American Friends of The Ocean Cleanup, a US based 501(c)(3) charity supporting the same mission.
If you donate through the website, you will receive an automated receipt.
If you donated by making a bank/wire transfer and would like a receipt, we can make one for you manually. You can contact us via our contact form specifying the following details:
- Full name
- Date of donation
- Full postal address
- Donation method (ie. Visa, PayPal, Bank Transfer)
- Donation made to the Dutch bank account or to American Friends of The Ocean Cleanup
After verifying your donation with this information, a receipt will be created for you. Please note that this is a manual process, and therefore we ask for your patience in advance.
