Give With Confidence

Donate to Heal the Bay

When you give to Heal the Bay, your donation enables us to bring children to the beach, often for the first time, through one of our educational field trips to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Your gifts allow us to provide beach cleanup materials, including gloves and data cards, as well as training talks to thousands of volunteers annually. Every contribution you make helps us advocate for safe, healthy and clean water with local and state governments.

Best of all, you can give with confidence knowing that your contribution directly supports our science, education, community action and advocacy efforts to restore our precious Southern California coastal waters and watersheds and protect the health of the public.

Donor Resources

At Heal the Bay, 84 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly to restore our coastal waters and watershed and protect the beach you love.

When you give to Heal the Bay, you make an investment in keeping our rivers, beaches and ocean safe, healthy and clean for all those who play, swim, surf, dive or fish along our shores, as well as for the marine animals and plants that call Santa Monica Bay home. 

Rest assured that your investment will be used in the most fiscally responsible way possible to improve the quality of Southern California coastal waters.  

Heal the Bay's Privacy Policy:  We will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else. We will never send mailings on behalf of other organizations to our donors, and we will never share a donor's personal information without their specific permission.

This organization has earned the GuideStar Exchange Seal, demonstrating its commitment to transparency.

For exceptional stewardship of your gifts, we adhere to a Donor Bill of Rights. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

Thank you for your investment in the future of our Bay!
