ORCA works with donors, colleagues and friends to protect and conserve aquatic ecosystems and the species they sustain for the benefit of this and future generations.


he ongoing support of monthly donors provides independent funding necessary to continue our work in actively restoring aquatic ecosystems through science, education, restoration and advocacy. By setting up your monthly gift today, you can relax knowing your tax-deductible giving plan is already in place for the end of the year. If your situation changes for any reason, you can always change or cancel your gift. Donate

Support from local corporations is vital in order to develop a conservation-focused community based on the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. There are many ways your organization can make a meaningful difference in our community by helping to restore and protect our treasured, local waterways. Contact Lauren Tracy at for more information on corporate sponsorship opportunities.

Your thoughtful legacy gift will make a profound contribution to future aquatic conservation and research efforts by helping ORCA preserve our aquatic ecosystems for those generations who follow us.  Please consider extending your support into the future by including ORCA in your estate plans with a legacy gift.

A donation to the Ocean Research & Conservation Association takes on special meaning when made in honor or memory of someone you care about, or when it commemorates a holiday, birthday, anniversary, or other occasion.  When you make a gift in honor or memory of someone, you may choose to have ORCA send a letter informing them of the gift.

Give your time. ORCA prepares community volunteers to participate in our work.  Together, we can acquire the data required to drive change and solve the problems facing our local waterways.  Learn  about volunteering with ORCA.

ORCA will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity. We will not send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.
