EJF’s work is enabled by grants and donations from private trusts and foundations, statutory agencies such as the EU’s EuropeAid and from ethical business. We also receive donations from individuals and income from the commercial sale of campaign films and photos, and from sales of our ethically-produced designer campaign t-shirts.

Collaborations with like-minded businesses include:
Firmdale Hotels have supported our work since 2014. In March 2015, they generously donated the use of the Dive Bar and Theatre at their wonderful Ham Yard Hotel in central London, along with staff time, refreshments and drinks. This enabled EJF to host a gala evening with friends, Patrons and supporters to celebrate our global oceans and EJF’s campaigns to protect them.
The FOUR Foundation’s
mission is to work with four charities associated with improving the living conditions of people in less economically advanced communities. We are delighted to be one of the FOUR Foundation's chosen charities for 2015 and to work with FOUR contributors and readers to raise awareness of the need to choose sustainable seafood.

Since June 2014, all four Tom’s Kitchen restaurants in London have been donating £1 from every Pollock & Chips dish sold to EJF’s Oceans Campaign. Tom’s Kitchen is committed to serving only the highest quality, ethically sourced ingredients and has continually supported EJF’s work to raise awareness of illegal ‘pirate’ fishing.
Po-Zu is a sustainable footwear company that pledges 3% of its sales income to four charities, including EJF. All of Po-Zu’s materials come from naturally renewable sources and are responsibly harvested.
Fish4Ever has supported our campaign to end illegal fishing for many years, with its founder raising nearly £10,000 for EJF in 2010 by cycling from London to Paris. In 2013, they sponsored and organised a World Oceans Day night ride from London to Portsmouth for EJF.
The t-shirt project
Over the past decade EJF has been supported by the fabulous support of designers including Katharine Hamnett, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix, Giles Deacon, Kenzo Takada, Luella, Eley Kishimoto, Jenny Packham and Emma Cook. Their exclusive donated designs printed onto ethically produced t-shirts have been modelled by a host of stars including Lily Cole, Naomi Campbell, Erin O’Connor, David Gandy, Gillian Anderson, Diana Vickers, George Craig and Olivia Coleman helping to raise the profile of our campaigns and the funds to support them. To date, the project has raised over £400,000 and created huge impact for affordable, sustainable fashion and our campaigns to protect the environment and defend human rights.
