For donors

If you care a whole awful lot....here are some ways to support our mission

Student scholarships

The costs of living in the Bay Area while working on a master's thesis can prohibit students from reaching their potential, or even applying. Your donation to the EOS Center Scholarship Fund can help our master's students focus on their research, and reduce barriers to entry or completion that many talented but traditionally excluded students experience.

Donate here

(go to "Designations", "Additional Giving Opportunities", and choose "Estuary & Ocean Science Center". Please include a note that your gift is intended for the EOS Center Scholarship Fund.

Coastal Resiliency Fund

This fund pays for on-the-ground restoration and research that advances our understanding of how to be most effective in restoring coastal resiliency.

Greenhouse Fund

We received a large donation to build a greenhouse at the EOS Center, but additional funding is needed to proceed with the project.

Student research support

 Donations to this fund support undergraduate and graduate student participation in research programs, including supply and travel costs. For example, we use this fund to help a diverse group of undergraduates participate in the Diving into Ecology and Evolution Program (DEEP), a marine science immersion program that Dr. Boyer co-administers with Dr. Karen Crow through the SF State Biology program and the EOS Center. Marine science students need expensive diving equipment, and they need support for travel to research sites and to conferences. Please help us help them meet their immense potential.

Community Partner Support

We are devoted to partnerships that bring training and opportunities to local communities. For example, we are working with Literacy for Environmental Justice in the Bayview/Hunter's Point neighborhood in San Francisco on coastal resiliency projects at Heron's Head Park and with the Conservation Corps North Bay, which employs youth in the Canal Neighborhood of San Rafael to work with us on fabrication of oyster reefs and other programs. Please consider donating directly to these organizations.
