Our work would not be possible if it weren’t for the support of so many others. Thanks to our supporters we have successfully funded our first journey aboard SV J.Henry. Now as we look towards the future, we are working to gather support for our next expedition. This expedition will pick up where we left off with the documentation of cultural and environmental work around the world. In addition, we will be building our education programs, providing a platform for marine research and working to share the experience and all that we learn with a much broader audience both aboard and abroad. Please consider becoming a supporter of Apparent Winds or continuing to support our work through one of the methods below.
We are currently working to create an Apparent Winds 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization. In the meantime, the Lowcountry Maritime School (LMS) has generously offered to be our fiscal sponsor, which allows our supporters to make tax-deductible charitable donations to support the Apparent Winds Expedition. Any funds donated through LMS that are earmarked for “Apparent Winds” will be put toward our next Expedition. Follow the link below to donate through LMS or you can mail contributions to:
Lowcountry Maritime School
1230 Pherigo Street, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, 29464
Be sure to clarify your contribution is meant to be directed to “Apparent Winds” !
Patreon and non-tax deductible gifts
We are thankful to have supporters of all types. Those who want to help our work but don’t need a tax write off or just want to make a smaller contribution can do so by supporting us on Patreon. Patreon is an online platform that offers our supporters an affordable monthly membership which supports us, while also receiving exclusive opportunities to connect with our work and our team.

Sponsorships play a large role in helping us to keep our expedition going, while giving our sponsors several platforms for their brand to gain recognition! We are looking to partner with like-minded companies who will benefit from global exposure throughout our journey. Please contact us for more information about our sponsorship offers. If you have a particular sponsorship idea in mind, we would like to hear it! Email Prentice@apparentwinds.com for more information.
