Give to Shoals

Thank you for your interest in supporting SML! Your gift, no matter the size, makes a big difference for SML students and island operations!

In 2016, SML surpassed our goal for the 2016 SML Fund campaign during our 50th Anniversary Year! Our dedicated community of supporters contributed to the 2016 SML Fund via 400 individual gifts, totaling just over $265,000! That's $15,000 beyond our $250,000 goal. When we reached the $100,000 milestone over the summer, the SML Fund received a $25,000 boost thanks to a matching grant from the Saquish Foundation. We cannot wait to share the positice impacts these funds will have! Click here to learn what a gift to Shoals Marine Laboratory will support. Thank you to all who contibuted to the SML Fund this year, and every year!

2017 is shaping up to be a great year as well. Thank you for your generosity and support!
