Your support is an investment in the increased resilience of our marshes, the wildlife that depends on them, and the coastal communities they protect. Through your giving, you promote appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of wetlands and coastal ecosystems.
Gifts from donors like you have created a sea change for the coastal ecosystem, and raised hope that future generations can enjoy healthy wetlands teeming with life. We have much left to do, and your donation is needed now more than ever. We’re counting on you!

How You Can Help

Give a gift and provide vital support for every facet of the Institute’s research, conservation, and education activities. Direct your gift by supporting the programs that matter most to you; making an impact by providing core organizational support; or investing in our endowment to provide support for generations to come.


Legacy Giving

The Herbert Mills Legacy Society, named after the founder of the Institute, honors those who have made a transformative decision to include The Wetlands Institute in their will or other estate plans. Herbert Mills Legacy Society members ensure future generations can experience the beauty and wonder of the coastal environment.

Corporate Sponsorship

Corporations have a long tradition of investing in local communities and projects and programs that further their missions and values. We work closely with our sponsors to build partnerships that provide valuable environmental and conservation benefits while increasing a company’s visibility with key constituents and meeting corporate sustainability goals through employee volunteer opportunities.
