Become a Donor

The Huntsman Marine Science Centre is grateful to all of our donors – including alumni, staff, friends and businesses – whose philanthropic support have built critical infrastructure, enhanced education and research opportunities, and left a legacy of ocean stewardship for the next generation.

The Huntsman Marine Science Centre is a private not-for-profit charity, registered in Canada in 1969, with a mission to inspire ocean stewardship through educational experiences and advance collaborative marine research. As a private institution, Huntsman relies on the contributions of donors and its own activities (e.g., entry fees to the Fundy Discovery Aquarium and research contracts) to operate and maintain our infrastructure in the absence of core funding from any level of government.

Our donors continuously tell us about their passion for the Huntsman and its mission and we are equally excited to ensure their generous gifts leave a lasting impact.
