At MSI, we believe that giving back to our community is very important. That’s why we are proud to support charitable organizations and community events every year.

We appreciate the opportunity to consider this request.  

Marine Science Institute will donate one (1) complimentary family membership good for one calendar year (12 months) on request, per calendar year, to nonprofit organizations [501(c)(3)] that directly benefit children’s education.

To whom do we give?

We donate to organizations that serve children ages 2-12.

We give first priority to organizations that cater to young children, support science education and/or animal welfare.

We only provide donations that will be used by families.
