Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

Ocean Life, Planet Health


Bigelow Laboratory’s scientists and staff are extremely grateful for the donors who provide support for critical research in and for the world’s ocean. Gifts of any amount from foundations, corporations, and individuals are key to our growth and accomplishments in ocean science.

All gifts will be acknowledged according to your wishes. See Information for Donors.

Gifts to the Laboratory’s Annual Fund help our scientists with matching funds needed for specific research projects; repair and upgrading of equipment, facilities, and communications networks; purchase of multi-user instruments for key initiatives; and for enhanced internet capabilities, publications, and outreach activities.

Gifts may be unrestricted (where they are needed most) or designated for educational programs such as the Keller BLOOM High School Program, or for annual scholarships in memory of Maureen Keller and Charles S. Yentsch.
