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 encourage women and girls to trust in the therapeutic nature of the sea to help them realize their true greatness and learn how to passionately and confidently ride life’s waves amidst the ever-changing tides.
There are 3 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, seeks to build a community of girls that inspire goodness and strength in each other.
- Work to 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 for survivors and our support of organizations centered on the prevention of abuse, we want to help 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, always – at every chance we get – endeavor to get more women and children, particularly survivors and those impacted by abuse, in, near, on the ocean so they can experience the power of the sea to heal and strengthen.
