Legacy Giving and Planned Gifts

Legacy gifts come in all shapes and sizes. They are a meaningful reflection and expression of your values during life. Plus, they can reduce income tax during your lifetime or through your estate.

Planned gifts may be deferred or provide immediate funding. Either way, Legacy Giving and Planned Gifts offer a powerful way to protect the ocean and marine mammals for future generations, offering benefits to both you and your loved ones.
