your support makes a world of difference


As a non-profit organization, the Aquarium of Niagara relies on the generosity of our visitors and friends to support the important work we do in aquatic animal conservation and education. Whether you’re able to make a one-time donation or become a monthly donor, we’re grateful for your contribution!

monthly giving

An automatic, monthly donation is the easiest, most sustainable way to help your friends at the Aquarium of Niagara. Become part of a dedicated group of supporters who help carry out our mission to inspire people to make a difference for aquatic life. Your monthly commitment helps us provide optimal care for our animals, educate our local, national, and international visitors, and promote conservation initiatives.

How it works:

  • When you sign up, we will automatically deduct your chosen amount from your debit or credit card each month. Scheduling payments throughout the year makes managing your budget more feasible.
  • By choosing electronic debits, you help us use less paper and save on mailings.
  • You decide if you want to discontinue or change your monthly giving at any time. Call 716.285.3575 ext. 208 or email for assistance.

How your monthly contribution helps our animals:

  • $10 a month ($120/year) will feed a penguin a diet of lake smelt, anchovies and herring for one month.
  • $25 a month ($300/year) will feed a seal a diet of herring, capelin, lake smelt and squid for three months.
  • $50 a month ($600/year) will cover almost two weeks of veterinary care.
  • $100 a month ($1,200/year) will pay our water bill for one week.
