The 2015 Giving Challenge begins at noon and you can be a part of it.

If you make your donation to Mote through this special online giving opportunity, you have the potential to have your donation matched — making an even greater impact on our research. This is how it works:

Donations must be made online starting today at noon and continuing through 11:59 a.m. tomorrow, September 2, at Our Giving Challenge Page.

This year, Mote has its own internal matching grant of $40,000 provided by two of our anonymous donors. We need your help to raise the $40,000 that will allow us to take full advantage of these donors' generous contributions. This means even $25 has the potential to help make a difference for the animals we rehabilitate, the research we do and the children we teach about our oceans.
You can also help by: Hurry…. the Challenge begins today at noon! Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to Mote.
