Giving Back

CFOA Marine Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 philanthropic organization

  • In 1997, the Central Florida Offshore Anglers (CFOA) Directors saw a need for a marine conservation program to support local marine fisheries and charities for children.  The CFOA Central Florida Marine Conservation Corp. (CFMCC) foundation was incorporated in the State of Florida and designated as a 501(c)3 public charity by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); EIN 59-3544792. In 2015, the CFOA membership voted to change the name from CFMCC to CFOA Marine Foundation, Inc., to represent the true connection with CFOA as its charitable arm.

    For over 20 years, the CFOA Marine Foundation (formerly CFMCC) has been dedicated to its purpose of improving the health and rehabilitation of our ocean, marine estuaries, and local children welfare organizations. The Marine Foundation has supported many conservation, marine fishery and children organizations including, but not limited to;
