The Bay Foundation (TBF)

The Bay Foundation (TBF) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit environmental group founded in 1990 to restore and enhance the Santa Monica Bay and local coastal waters. The Foundation  is the non-profit partner of the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission. The Foundation raises and expends funds for research, education, planning, cleanup efforts, and other priorities identified in the Commission's Santa Monica Bay Restoration Plan. We work with a broad group of stakeholders, including government agencies, industry, environmental groups, and scientists, to implement innovative policies and projects that clean up our waterways, create green spaces and natural habitats in the Los Angeles region.
