Your Gift to Save the Bay is Now Worth 3X!

Thanks to our generous friends at The Merrill Family Foundation, every gift through December 31 will be TRIPLED up to $300K. Donate today—while your gift is worth 3X—to restore the national treasure right in our backyard.

  • $35 becomes $105 and can plant 10,500 native oysters, which can filter up to 50 gallons of water a day per oyster.
  • $50 becomes $150 and can plant 30 native trees, which slow polluted runoff and soil erosion.
  • $250 becomes $750 and can teach 10 future stewards how to restore the Bay.
  • $500 becomes $1,500 and can remove 900 pounds of trash from the Bay and its rivers and streams.

Thank you for your continued commitment to restoring and protecting the Bay, its rivers, and its streams.

Make it monthly and do even MORE to help restore the Bay and its rivers and streams!
Why use your bank account? It's easy, safe, and there are no fees—more of your gift goes to restoring the Bay.
