OC Coast Keepers

OC Coast Keepers works to protect the environmental quality of the water systems in Orange County as well as protecting the ecological systems through policy and community work. The donation was used to improve and fund the Coastal Water Quality Improvement Program. The majority (78%) of the UC Irvine Winter 2017 Class’s evaluators found their $6,000 grant to OC Coast Keepers to be a good decision with a good outcome because it allowed for a clean environment and water at beaches and lakes in the area. Another 11% of students found the grant to be a good decision with a bad outcome, while the remaining 11% thought the grant was a mistake. This is because the report provided by the organization was not as detailed as the students would have liked.
