The Oregon Coast Aquarium's future depends on you—Our Sea Stars
The mission of the Oregon Coast Aquarium is to inspire the public to better understand, cherish and conserve marine and coastal ecosystems. You can be part of this important mission through our planned giving program, Sea Stars. By including the Aquarium in your estate plans, you will help us grow and flourish for current and future generations. Your children, grandchildren and their children will continue to have a world class aquarium to visit where they will learn about the ocean and the awe inspiring animals that call it home.
We named our planned giving program Sea Stars not because of their distinctive shape, but for their amazing ability to regenerate and repair limbs by creating new cells, which in turn, sparks new growth. When you become a Sea Star, the Oregon Coast Aquarium’s new growth and future regeneration will depend on you and those who had the foresight to make planned gifts.
