This is the BIG day! Help us raise 13K!

Today is the BIG day!

The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is participating in GiveBIG, a one-day, online charitable giving event through the Seattle Foundation. Our theme is climate change action.

We are trying to raise $13,000 by the end of the day to support collective actions to address the problems affecting our oceans, including climate change, but we need your help.

Thanks to a group of generous PTMSC donors, the first $6,500 received today, May 5th, will be matched 1:1, so donate early through the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG campaign and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar!

Your donation today will allow us to train volunteers and inspire visitors with our new Gone Green? Go Blue! exhibits, conduct important citizen science research on rising jelly fish populations, and fund a pilot program giving local high school students the opportunity to conduct research on ocean acidification.

All funds raised during the GiveBIG campaign directly support the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.

Please help us reach our goal of $13,000 today. Thank you for being a champion of ocean health and conservation.
