Ways to Give

Monthly Gifts

Monthly sustaining gifts truly make a difference. Monthly gifts are an important part of any nonprofit’s work, as they allow us to plan better and build capacity for research, education, demonstration projects and long-term resilience work. All monthly gifts include a subscription to our Breakwater e-newsletter, 10% off all merchandise in our gift shop, plus other special mailings.

The Prince William Sound Science Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation; your contribution is fully tax deductible. You can set-up recurring gifts online via our secure donation form, or please contact Signe Baumann:, or 907-424-5800, ext 260.

Employer Matched Gifts

Does your employer match charitable gifts? If so, your donation could have twice the impact for resilience in the world’s richest waters, and beyond. Employers often double or even triple your charitable gift. Please contact your HR department to inquire about employer-matched gifts and then please contact online or contact Signe Baumann:, or 907-424-5800, ext 260.

Planned Giving

Gift and estate planning, including donations of real estate or naming us as a beneficiary of your IRA / 401k or other qualified plan, is an extraordinarily flexible and simple way to meet your philanthropic and financial goals. Let us show you how you can make a gift that benefits you and your loved ones as well as the world’s richest waters.
