​​Honor Someone

Take the guesswork out of birthday, holiday, or life-milestone gift-giving by supporting the Aquarium! Make a gift in honor or in memory of a relative, friend, or colleague with a tribute gift to the Virginia Aquarium. Your honoree, or the family of the individual memorialized, will be notified of your special gift, and you will receive an acknowledgment, as well. GuideStar.png

Matching Gifts

Make your money go twice as far for the Virginia Aquarium! If you or your spouse's employer has a matching gift program, your gift may be worth twice as much. Retirees and volunteers may be eligible for matching gifts, as well. Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gift program, request the matching gift form, and send it along with your gift to:

Virginia Aquarium Foundation

Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Planned Gifts

An estate gift to the Virginia Aquarium creates a lasting legacy for you and your family. The Aquarium Society recognizes donors who make planned gifts to the Aquarium. Planned gifts ensure that the Aquarium can continue inspiring conservation of the marine environment for years to come.

You can make a planned gift to the Virginia Aquarium by:

  • Leaving a gift in your will or living trust
