Ways to Contribute
Contribute to the Aquarium
We depend on the generousity of our Donors
Idaho Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we depend on the donations from our donors for 100% of the cost to build our exhibits. Once we are open and running, the cost of admission will run our operating costs, with additional donations to build new exhibits.
There are many ways you can contribute to the aquarium. By adopting an animal, donating cash, contributing gift certificates or other merchandise for raffles, volunteering service, or buying a raffle ticket, you can be a part of our growing organization.
Adopting an Animal- Adopt An Animal Program
You can adopt your favorite animal - a sea turtle, puffer fish, seal, shark, or thousands of other animals that will live at the aquarium. You can actually help bring a new animal to the aquarium of your choice, name it, and get your picture posted with it by the exhibit.
Cash donations are distributed 100% to the building of the exhibits.
Sponsor an Exhibit -
You can also sponsor an entire exhibit and get a recognition plaque on the exhibit. These generous contributions are an excellent way to become a major part in the community and the aquarium.
Gift Certificates and Merchandise -
Any item of value is another way to give to the Boise Aquarium. These items are gathered for our fundraising programs and raffle events. Raffle tickets are sold, which go straight to building of the exhibits and animals.
Volunteering for the Boise Aquarium gives you hands on experience with development for the aquarium. Anyone 18 or older is welcome to be a part. This is an excellent way to contribute. If you would like to become a volounteer, please contact us at IdahoAquarium@gmail.com
