Year-End Giving Options

In ESF, Featured by Administrator

Your generous donations help the Reserve and Foundation share, protect, study, conserve, and restore this amazing area. Please know at this time of giving that there are many options to which you can support our work.

From gifts of stock to our Bus Fund Box in the Visitor Center, from memberships to donations through Monterey County Gives! your generosity and commitment to the slough makes all the difference.

There are many year-end giving options to choose from:

MC Gives! – If you make a donation through Monterey County Gives! your donation will be increased by a match through the end of the year.


Adopt an Oak – this a great gift idea! The recipient has their name virtually identified with a growing oak on conserved lands, we send you a link to the Google Earth file so that they can watch the grove change, as well as a certificate suitable for framing. Adopt an Oak today.


Gift Memberships – Give the gift of supporting Elkhorn Slough. Now through Jan 15 all Gift Memberships come with our 2018 calendar. Click here to give a gift membership.

Gifts of Stock – An opportunity to help the slough and  receive even greater tax benefits. Please call our Development Team at (831) 728-5939.

Donate in Honor of a Friend  – who doesn’t have that friend that has everything?  Let them know you value their friendship with a gift to the environment. They will receive a card from us letting them know that you have honored them with a donation in their name. Give a tribute donation.

Year-end Donation – and of course, this is a wonderful time to make a tax-deductible gift to the Elkhorn Slough Foundation that will support our land conservation and restoration work, our programs with local youth, as well as support the Elkhorn Slough Reserve’s research, stewardship, education, and volunteer programs.
