Dear Alex,


It gives me great pleasure to accept in principle The Mandarin High School Marine Science program into the Reef Ball Foundationís Grant Program. We place a high priority on educational programs, and your letter demonstrates that your organization places a strong emphasis on educating youth on the importance of the ocean eco-system.


It will be in your programs best interest to confer with us about the parameters of your project, so you can select the most appropriate size molds for your project. Please call and we will be happy to assist in designing the ideal program for your specific goals.


In order to ship your molds, we must first receive your deposit which is fully refundable when the mold is returned in good condition. We also ask that your implement a monitoring program and send us press clippings and periodic progress reports pertinent to Reef Ball activities. (2 video monitorings per year)


We look forward to working with you in creating an exceptional Oceanography and Marine Biology program. Please give me a call when you have further questions.
