Memorial and Tribute Gifts

With a memorial or tribute gift to the National Marine Life Center, you honor someone whose life has special importance to you.  You also ensure that future generations will enjoy knowing that marine animals have been given a chance to survive and be released back to their ocean home.

When making your gift, please provide the name of the person you are honoring and where you would like your acknowledgment sent.  We will notify the family or individual of your thoughtfulness.

You may also choose to establish a fund in memory of your loved one.  These funds can be designated towards a specific program, such as rehabilitation, science, or education, or towards general operations, to ensure the National Marine Life Center’s sustainability into the future.

Existing funds include:
~ The Elizabeth S. Hornor Memorial Fund, which helps fund our marine animal rehabilitation program.
~ The Townsend Hornor Memorial Fund, which helps fund our marine animal hospital construction project.

In donating to these funds, select “In Memory Of” and write Elizabeth S. Hornor or Townsend Hornor in the “Individual’s Name to be Honored” line.

Thank you for choosing the National Marine Life Center.
