Loggerhead Marinelife Center's Annual Fund offers our donors the opportunity to make tax deductible donations to the Center while enjoying many additional exciting benefits.  A tax-deductible donation to the Annual Fund supports the operations of Loggerhead Marinelife Center wherever the need is greatest. Your contribution helps promote conservation of Florida's coastal ecosystems with a special focus on threatened and endangered sea turtles.  Are you currently a member of LMC?  Your contribution will still entitle you to the great benefits you’ve received in the past as a member but will be enhanced.
