Make a Gift in Honor or Memory

A gift in honor or memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone—or a special occasion—while helping the Chesapeake Bay Foundation protect, preserve, and restore the Bay and its rivers and streams for current and future generations.

If your gift is in honor, then we will send a notification to the honoree. If your gift is a memorial, the next of kin you specify will receive a notification of your donation at the beginning of the month—and their loved one's name will appear in our Annual Report.

Your contribution will help support our organization's much-needed programs and is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Make a regular donation here.
