About The OisF Foundation
The OisF Foundation is a saltwater-inspired nonprofit born out of a simple love of the ocean, and a deep-rooted respect and gratitude for the power that she holds to help strengthen and heal us.
An approved 501(c)(3) organization, it is our mission to foster kindness and strength in girls, and to support and empower survivors of abuse. Inspired by the transformative powers of the sea, The OisF connects women and girls to the ocean through local activities & programs.
There are 2 core elements to The OisF's mission, they are to:
- Provide a support network for our young girls through The OisF Rider Program – which, through various opportunities and local events centered around the ocean, is building a community of girls that inspire goodness and strength in each other.
- Support survivors of abuse – and empower all women and girls whose voices have been silenced. The OisF has become a vehicle to promote conversation and raise awareness of the prevalence of abuse in our communities. Through our advocacy work, we are helping to end the silence and stigma surrounding abuse and give survivors – and all women and girls – a voice and a safe space to share their stories. And through our various programs and services, we are getting more women and children who have suffered from abuse or been exposed to domestic violence in, near and around the sea – so that they can experience firsthand the power of the sea to heal and strengthen.
