Legacy Society

Plan for a beautiful tomorrow

By including Tampa Bay Watch in your Legacy planning, your Stock, IRA, or bequest gifts will directly contribute to coastal restoration and marine science education for generations. As our gift to you, a Legacy Reef Ball with your inscribed message will become part of a living shoreline in Tampa Bay.


Through a provision in your will, you can make a simple yet significant gift that will provide for the future of Tampa Bay Watch’s work to protect and restore the Tampa Bay estuary and create a lasting legacy.
