Greg Brown Memorial Fund

Captain Greg Brown was a great champion of whales and he loved sharing that love and passion for whales with others. To help ensure his legacy is carried on, we have established the Greg Brown Memorial Fund. All donations received in his memory will go towards sponsoring a presenter at Whale Tales – our annual educational event dedicated to sharing what we are learning about whales with others.


Bill Scott Memorial Fund

To honor the contributions, passion and commitment of a true Whale Trust Maui Champion, Bill Scott, for inspiring and educating others in the marine mammal field, we launched the Bill Scott Memorial Fund in 2011. This fund supports marine mammal research projects that directly involve students of all ages, from high school through the graduate level.


Research Vessel and Maintenance Fund

As anyone who has ever owned a boat knows, they require constant maintenance and care. We currently operate two boats and one needs to be replaced! Help our researchers stay on the water by making a gift to our Research Vessel and Maintenance Fund so that we can maintain our research vessels in a safe way.
