Endowing an Internship Scholarship
REEF brings college students and recent graduates to our headquarters to intern for a semester. Four interns and at least one Environmental Leadership Intern are provided discounted housing and still incur additional expenses to participate in diving trips, food, gas and other expenses. We have one scholarship endowed and would like to see additional scholarships to assist in supporting their work.
For other giving opportunities, you may want to consider a planned gift. Your bequest to REEF may qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. For additional information, please visit our Planned Giving page. Always consult your tax or financial adviser for further information.
