Glass Guild Offers Unique Philanthropic Opportunity

The Glass Guild features the Aquarium’s iconic biomorphic glass panels and stands as a testament to the enduring support of our donors. Each panel, reflecting light uniquely throughout the day and sparkling in rainy weather, offers a perpetual philanthropic opportunity for individuals, corporations, and foundations.

A special thank you to our Glass Guild members, whose contributions fuel our conservation endeavors, sustains our animal welfare initiatives, and enriches the educational experiences of countless students.

Long-standing Pacific Circle member Elizabeth Pearson and sister Kate Higgins have brought their children to the Aquarium for many years. They wanted to commemorate and support the importance of an organization that holds special memories for their family.

“It’s always been a place where we could take them, and they love everything about the Aquarium. It’s a great way to learn to effect change in our world and be mindful. Every time they go [to the Aquarium] they know they are a part of it.”

Join us and leave an everlasting legacy of philanthropy. Explore the transformative impact of the Glass Guild online.
