Giving to the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory welcomes gifts of all types. Your donation helps advance our cutting-edge research about the natural world around us.

Donors may make unrestricted or restricted gifts at anytime. Unrestricted gifts - those not restricted for a specific purpose - are vital to CBL’s continued success. Restricted gifts allow you to direct your gift to a specific program or scholarship that is important to you. 

You can make a gift to CBL by completing our Friends of CBL Donation Form.  If you would prefer to make your gift or pledge by phone, arrange for a transfer of securities or learn about planned giving opportunities, you may contact the Director's Office at:

The impact of your gift can be increased if your employer matches charitable contributions.  Please contact your human resources office to verify if your employer participates in a matching program.

Make checks payable to the University System of Maryland Foundation, Inc. 

All funds raised will be administered by the University of Maryland Foundation, Inc. for the benefit of UMCES-Chesapeake Biological Laboratory.
