Donate to Cal Poly Humboldt Marine Facilities

If you are interested in supporting the lab your donations can help fund a number of activities. Although we are supported by State funds many of our activities are dependent on external funds, primarily grants and contracts, and donations.  Even a small donation is important to us. 

If you have a specific activity or program at the lab you'd like to support just select "other" under the donation designation and describe where you would like it to go.

Here are a few of the things we are trying to raise funds for:

  • Increasing the hours we are open to the public, especially on weekends (we are currently free).
  • Support student research projects.
  • Help us build a new, interactive touch tank.
  • Support for our Marine Science Summer Kids program.
  • Support new technology and student experiences on board the Coral Sea.

If you questions about donating please contact Rick Zechman at

Thank you!
