Monthly Giving

Become a Tide Pooler!

The Seattle Aquarium monthly giving program

Just like the tide pools on our local shorelines that sustain the lives of countless marine animals, our monthly donors help sustain the Seattle Aquarium by providing critical support each month.

Earth’s one ocean is facing many challenges—and when you join Tide Poolers, our monthly giving program, you’ll be helping to protect it for generations to come. Together, we can make a difference for the ocean and the amazing diversity of animals that call it home!

With a monthly gift, you will:

  • Provide sustaining support each month for the animals in our care and help regenerate a healthier ocean for all.
  • Join a community of like-minded ocean advocates.
  • Receive invites to special events to witness your impact firsthand.
  • And more exciting benefits, coming soon!

Help protect our marine environment 

It takes many creatures to support a healthy tide pool ecosystem. Monthly donors help support a healthy marine environment by educating, engaging and inspiring Aquarium guests—as well as the community at large—to act on behalf of our one world ocean. 

When you make a monthly gift in any amount, you’re joining a community that will help advance the Aquarium’s marine conservation mission and protect the ocean we all depend on. 

Thank you for being the tide pools that sustain the Seattle Aquarium!

Monthly donations: simple and easy

Set up a recurring gift and it will automatically process each month. You can easily change or stop your gift at any time. The best part? You’ll make an impact throughout the year in a way that works for your budget.

Take your support to the next level

All monthly donors receive special benefits—but if you give $25 or more per month, you’ll become eligible for the Friends of the Aquarium donor club and its affiliated benefits as well. Join this community and meet other supporters at exclusive events just for donors.
