Welcome to the Okavango Foundation

Where passion for the planet meets purposeful action

About Us

Protecting The World’s Blue, Green, and Gray in All That Matters

The Okavango Foundation was started by the Keefe family, driven by the mission to restore and protect the health of the planet, including the animals and humans who call this world home. Each year, our foundation provides donations to nonprofits and organizations that further our mission. 

Blue Initiative

Ocean & Waterway Conservation

An urgent mission to safeguard our oceans and waterways, the beating heart of Earth’s ecosystems. From pristine streams to vast oceans, our commitment goes beyond preservation—it’s about revitalization.


Wildlife & Animal Protection

Every species, whether mighty or minuscule, plays a role in the tapestry of life. We’re not just protectors; we’re advocates for creatures that are unable to advocate for themselves.


Mental Health Advancements

Recognizing that humanity’s place in the world is deeply intertwined with our mental well-being, we support research that aims to reduce human suffering due to mental illness.
