Support Us


From its earliest days to the present, the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences has attracted the support of individuals and organizations that have been instrumental in shaping the institute’s facilities and programs. Private philanthropy has enabled BIOS to expand its research both geographically and scientifically, fostering innovation and collaboration to advance the frontiers of knowledge about our global oceans. At the same time, private support has enabled BIOS to use its significant expertise to enhance the education of students from grade school to the college and postgraduate levels, including hundreds of Bermudian youths each year.

We invite you to join the cohort of BIOS donors who are contributing to the acquisition of knowledge that is needed to inform our society on complex socio-scientific issues such as climate change, environmental management, ecosystem health, and risk prediction; and to the science education of the next generation who will likely face challenges even greater than these.

We thank all of you who have supported BIOS over the years, and we welcome those who may just be discovering the world-class work we do here in Bermuda and abroad. As you consider making a gift to BIOS, we encourage you to learn more about our mission and keep apprised of our progress via our on-line newsletter Currents.
