Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

What if, for every dollar you donated to the Aquarium, we received two?

Many employers encourage employees to donate providing matching gifts that double or even triple the effect of individual donors.

Not only do these gifts support our programs and help us take care of our animal ambassadors, they are also tax-deductible.

Before you make a contribution to the Aquarium of the Pacific, ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. This could potentially double the impact of your individual contribution!

If you have questions about matching gifts, or if you know of a company that would be interested in setting up a matching gift program with the Aquarium of the Pacific please call the Development Office at (562) 951-5341.


Tesoro Doubles Employee Donations

Tesoro’s Matching Gifts Program is one of the ways Tesoro, in partnership with the Tesoro Foundation, supports employees’ philanthropic efforts while strengthening the communities where they live and work. To maximize impact and empower employee giving, the Tesoro Foundation will match qualified employee gifts of $50 or more, dollar-for-dollar, to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Donations will be matched up to $5,000, collectively, per employee per calendar-year. If you have any questions about the Program, please contact Tesoro’s Community Affairs team at
