Make A One-Time Donation

The Marine Science Center receives many one-time donations from Volusia County residents, visitors from other states and countries, and even children who have visited the center. We know these kids will grow up to love, protect and respect the environment and animals that call this home. To make a one-time donation by credit card or check, please call the office at 386-304-5545 or download an adoption application and bring it with you on your next visit to the Marine Science Center. We hope to see you soon!
