More Ways to Give

Dedicate a gift

A gift to Heal the Bay is the perfect way to show someone how important they are while at the same time making a significant difference in our Bay. When you dedicate a donation on behalf of or in memory of a person, you can recognize an accomplishment (e.g. graduation), celebrate an event (e.g. birthday, wedding or holiday), or honor someone's memory. If you like, Heal the Bay will send notification of your dedication gift along with your personal note to the person of your choosing.

Bequest to heal the bay 

Has protecting clean water been a lifelong cause for you? Make sure your charitable legacy lives on after you are gone with a gift to Heal the Bay through your will, called a "bequest." General Bequests are legacies left to causes that come from the general value of the estate. Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose. Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to Heal the Bay if your beneficiary does not survive you. Consult our Sample Bequests (PDF) to learn how to give to Heal the Bay.
