Donors of gifts come from all across the spectrum of society and they give to National Marine Institute for many reasons.  Underlying most gifts is a desire to help future generations understand the relationship of the oceans to our environment.


Students enjoy the day at Miami Seaquarium while learning about whales and other forms of marine life.


Cash contributions help us provide scholarship assistance to deserving students in our programs.  Donated equipment and boats are used in our instructional programs to provide hands-on training and experience.  Proceeds from the leasing of donated equipment help to fund scholarships and develop new curriculums and services.
