The PADI FOUNDATION encourages and supports underwater science, environmental projects, and education. The Foundation will fund and assist worthwhile projects that will enrich mankind's understanding of the aquatic environment and encourage sensitivity to and protection of the delicate ecological balance of underwater life. The Foundation will also fund worthwhile projects to increase understanding of sport diving physics and physiology that will benefit the general diving public and add to the scientific understanding of man's relationship and ability to survive in the underwater environment. The PADI Foundation is an IRC Section 501 (c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt organization. It is a separate and distinct organization, corporately unrelated to PADI, Inc. and its affiliates, but funded through International PADI, Inc.

Since 1992, the Foundation has awarded over $3.5 million to 832 projects.  In 2013, $266,450 was awarded to 59 projects. Each year, the Foundation will consider proposals with budgets up to $20,000 although the average for proposals will be on the order $5,000 to $10,000.  The Foundation will not fund overhead or other direct expenses.
