Our Ocean Legacy Circle honors the dedicated individuals who share our commitment to the ocean and have designated a gift in their will, living trust or other part of their estate plan. Their gifts will support our future programs and exhibits and advance our mission to inspire conservation of the ocean.

If you have arranged a gift in your estate plan, please let us know. We would like to thank you and welcome you into this special circle of supporters. With your permission, we would be honored to include your name on our Ocean Legacy Circle donor plaque in the Aquarium and in our Shorelines magazine.

While you may choose to remain anonymous, when you allow us to recognize you, others are encouraged to join the Ocean Legacy Circle. Ocean Legacy donors are also invited to our annual reception each year, and other donor events. Should you name the Monterey Bay Aquarium in your estate plan, we would welcome a copy of the legal document or section of document that describes your gift. This can make estate administration easier when your gift is received.
