Meridian facilitates, coordinates, and supports grantee engagement for the Indonesia Marine Funders Collaboration (IMFC). Meridian works to ensure that participating funders can easily share information, jointly fund projects of mutual interest, and align grantmaking strategies to better support marine conservation and accelerate the transition to sustainable fisheries management in Indonesia. The funders participating in the IMFC share a vision of restoring and protecting coastal and marine resources in Indonesia, while enhancing the fisheries management that supports local communities.

The IMFC was formed in 2013 to help each of the constituent funders work more effectively, and to provide a platform for potential collective action.

Participants in the IMFC have included:

  • ADM Capital Foundation
  • Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
  • Kingfisher Foundation
  • Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation
  • Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies
  • Oak Foundation
  • Oceans 5
  • Rajawali Foundation
  • Quadrivium Foundation
  • The David and Lucile Packard Foundation
  • The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
  • U.S. Agency for International Development-Indonesia
  • Vulcan/Paul G. Allen Philanthropies
