We would like to thank the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation USA for their recent approval of our request for a grant through their Foundation.

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation USA is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization incorporated in New York State in 2016 to further the goals of the parent foundation which was established by Princess Charlene of Monaco, a former Olympic swimmer for South Africa, to promote water safety, sport and education programs particularly for children and young people.

Its mission is to promote the benefits of sporting activities; teach children and adults basic swimming, water safety, first-aid and drowning prevention skills, and foster national or international amateur sports competitions.

Since the parent foundation was set up in 2012, under the Princess’s presidency and the vice presidency of Monaco’s Sovereign, H.S.H. Prince Albert II, more than 100 water safety programs benefiting almost 100,000 people, mainly children, have been implemented in Monaco, South Africa, Australia, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Canada, Chile, France, Ghana, Greece, India, Indonesia, Macedonia, Madagascar, Malaysia, Morocco, Nicaragua, Peru, Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Senegal, Sudan, Serbia, Tanzania, Thailand, the USA, and Zimbabwe. Its missions are to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children preventive measures, and teach them to swim.

On behalf of our Board of Directors we extended our deepest appreciation for their recognition and support of our mission to educate and raise awareness about shallow water blackouts.
