Your charitable contribution to Surfing Heritage provides vital support that enables our Foundation to carry out its mission to preserving, presenting and promoting surfing’s heritage for the appreciation and education of current and future generations; and to achieving our goal of surfing being more accurately understood, represented and enjoyed.
There are many ways that you can give to Surfing Heritage. Whether you choose to become an annual supporter at one of the various levels of membership that provide funding for operating requirements, a tribute gift in memory or honor of a loved one, or attend a special fund-raising event, your generosity will make a difference!
We welcome gifts in support of both unrestricted and capital needs. We are pleased to recognize significant gifts through permanent naming opportunities at our Foundation facility. A named gift to Surfing Heritage sends a strong message to our community and visitors that an individual, business, or organization has generously loaned their name in support of our effort to provide quality exhibits, research, and educational programs.
Named gifts may bear your name, your family name, your company’s name, or the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize. Through a named gift, the generous support of the donor or designee can be appropriately recognized as a permanent part of the Surfing Heritage collection. Named gift opportunities may be permanently attached to tangible areas within our facility, but may also be used to endow the Foundation’s general operations, specific programs, or chairs.
A donor may wish to underwrite specific projects of the Surfing Heritage Foundation, including photo collections, oral history projects, memorabilia and more, or may wish to make a planned gift through a charitable remainder trust, bequest, or other gift method. Please contact us for more information on how to underwrite specific programs.
