Corporate gift matching
Double the impact of your gift to MARE! Many companies will match dollar-for-dollar gifts made to nonprofits by their employees. Talk to your human resources department about charitable matching corporations.
Donating Stock: A Gift of Appreciated Securities
A popular way to make a charitable gift with potential tax advantages is through a gift of appreciated securities, such as stocks or bonds. Your personal financial planner and tax advisor can advise you how best to leverage a larger donation by using appreciated securities rather than cash to make your gift. Contact Phil Stevens (510) 232-1541 for directions.
Leave a legacy
Thank you for considering a commitment to the future of our oceans. If you wish to name MARE in your will or estate plan, here is language you can use:
“I give (____ dollars) or (___ percent of my estate) to Marine Applied Technology & Exploration (MARE), a nonprofit corporation, with principal business address of 1230 Brickyard Cove Road, #101, Point Richmond, CA 93801, for the benefit of MARE for its general purposes.”
Other ways to give
At MARE, all unrestricted charitable gifts are used strategically to support top conservation priorities. If you have a more specific purpose in mind, please contact Phil Stevens at (510) 232-1541 to ensure that we can meet your wishes. Whether you choose to restrict a gift or not, your support will help preserve our oceans for future generations to enjoy.
Marine Applied Research & Exploration (MARE) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID number 31-1821639). All gifts to MARE are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
For the Davis family, an investment in MARE helps to connect others with the natural world. “Supporting MARE goes beyond my personal impact,” says Sorrel. “Our support through the family foundation can also help inspire others to do the same.”
While MARE’s origins reach into the Channel Islands, the organization is equally rooted in MARIN County, home of the Tustin and Rosen families. Family associations continue to nurture the growing nonprofit, and two Tustin siblings, Jay and Lisa share experiences they hope will inspire others.
That’s right! When you shop online you can save more than money, you can save ocean habitat. Amazon will donate 0.5% of its sales to MARE.
