Tribute Gifts

Honor a special person

A Tribute Gift is a great way to recognize a special person or family. For each individual Tribute Gift of $25 or more, we will promptly send a beautiful, personalized tribute card to you, or to the person or family you indicate, to notify them of your thoughtful donation.

How to donate

Tribute gifts are great for:

  • Birthdays

  • Weddings or other celebratory gift

  • To mark a special event like an anniversary or birth

  • Holiday gifts

  • To honor anyone for any reason

  • To remember someone who has passed away


Your donation will support MSI’s mission to deliver innovative marine science education programs. All donations are tax deductible.


When you make your online gift select "Tributes and Memorials" under the Program Designation menu.  In the Dedication field, type in the message that you wish to have inside of the card, indicate the number of cards needed, and the contact info for the card recipient(s). Please provide as much detail as possible.


Alternately, you may make a Tribute Gift by completing the form and mailing it to us with your check, or contacting us at (650) 364-2760 x 14 to make the gift over the phone.

"We are so blessed to have so much and wanted to share that by giving to an organization we support in lieu of gifts.

Our son loved MSI and this is a great way to honor his spirit and passion for marine science.
