On the fourth anniversary of the oil spill in the Gulf, the Walton Family Foundation salutes our grantees who have worked tirelessly since the disaster to restore the natural beauty, health and prosperity of the Gulf Coast.
Our work in the Gulf is based on our belief that the environmental health of the region is interconnected with its economic prosperity. To ensure that the Gulf environment and economy continue to thrive, we invest in local advocates and community leaders that are working to protect and restore both.
The work to restore the Gulf and the industries and communities it supports is far from over. That’s why we will continue to support common sense Gulf restoration now and into the future, until the Gulf is strong and resilient enough to drive the region’s economy for generations to come.
