Give With Confidence

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.
