connor is our reason. buoyancy is our mission.


At just 15 years old, Connor Gage lost his life to a preventable drowning. Shortly after, we founded The LV Project -- which stands for LiVe, LoVe and Life Vest. Founded to honor Connor's life, The LV Project relentlessly pursues the idea that all people can LiVe and LoVe buoyantly, on water and in life. During swim season, The LV Project completes water buoyancy projects and programs which help prevent drownings. The rest of the year, our focus shifts to life buoyancy service projects and programs which give people in need a lift.  Learn more at

Thank you for helping others live & love buoyantly.
