The Pigeon Key Foundation and Marine Science Center is a 501c-3 non-profit organization. We do not receive any federal or state funding. Pigeon Key is maintained and cared for through funds generated by our marine science programming, daily historical tours, and private donations.

So where does your money go? By donating any monetary amount, you are enabling the staff of The Pigeon Key Foundation to maintain a balanced educational and historical setting on our five acre island. All donations and proceeds go towards enhancing the structural integrity of the buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and surrounding grounds.
