Any and all contributions, regardless of size, are welcome, and play an important role in the success of the Estuary & Ocean Science Center. Here are just a few ways to support our mission – and make a real difference in guiding the restoration and stewardship of our San Francisco Bay and similar bodies of water around the world:
Annual Gifts - You can make quarterly, semi-annual or annual gifts to the Center by check or credit card.
Matching Gifts - You may be able to double your gift if your company has a matching gift program. Simply include a completed, signed matching gift form from your company, along with your contribution. We’ll take care of the rest.
Bequests - Include the Estuary & Ocean Science Center in your will or estate plan, and leave a legacy for future generations.
Charitable Remainder Trusts - You can convert highly appreciated assets such as real estate or securities to a charitable remainder trust, receive income for life or a term of years, without incurring capital gains tax when the asset is sold. When the trust terminates, the remainder will benefit the Estuary & Ocean Science Center for years to come.
Online Donations - Give online via our secure website. In the “About Your Gift” section, please indicate where the gift should be directed – there is a Estuary & Ocean Science Center (Romberg Tiburon Center) option or an “other” designation. Also, you can add a specific gift description under the “comments” section.
Mail Donations - Complete and print out this form and mail the form along with a check made out to “The University Corporation, San Francisco State” to:
Office of University Development
San Francisco State University
1600 Holloway Avenue, ADM 153
San Francisco, CA 94132
