We are just two days away from the annual Giving Challenge — the time when you can make your donation to Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium count!
  • This year, two anonymous donors have generously agreed to MATCH ALL donations up to $40,000 that come to Mote during the Giving Challenge.
  • That means every dollar donated to Mote online during the Giving Challenge will be doubled! And, as a bonus, donations will also be eligible for other matching dollars provided through the Giving Challenge.
  • TO REGISTER YOUR DONATION IN ADVANCE: Please call Kate Knepper at (941) 388-4441 ext. 393 and we will ensure that it is recorded during the early moments of the Giving Challenge.
  • TO DONATE DURING THE GIVING CHALLENGE: Log on to Mote's Giving Challenge Page Here.
With your help, we can make this year's Challenge the most successful yet! Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to Mote.
