Memorial Gifts

A memorial gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved and pay tribute to a loved one. All gifts create a lasting impact and allow us to fulfill our mission to instill a sense a wonder, respect, and stewardship for the Pacific Ocean, its inhabitants, and ecosystems.

Give a Memorial Gift

Should you want to direct family and friends to make gifts to the Aquarium in lieu of flowers, the following is suggested wording for an obituary or other tribute:

“In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the Aquarium of the Pacific in memory of {deceased name}. Please send your support to: Aquarium of the Pacific Attn: Development Department 320 Golden Shore, Suite 350 Long Beach, CA 90802”

Tribute or Celebration Gifts

Make a gift to recognize or honor someone you love and help support the Aquarium’s mission. Your contribution is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the life of a loved one by honoring a milestone such as a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or graduation- or simply to thank someone while supporting your Aquarium.
