Coastal Society

Join us in making a difference!

Belonging to the Coastal Society makes you part of a vital community of donors shaping the future of our magnificent coast.

This community supports protecting and restoring productive coastal waters and habitats. Help us engage coastal residents and visitors, including our youth and community leaders, in the stewardship of a healthy and prosperous coast.

Coastal Society members provide critical dollars to put restoration projects on the ground, connect students with outdoor classrooms and mobilize advocates in the community. These donations provide the essential foundation for our work and provide the basis to pursue competitive grant funding. As a member of the Coastal Society, you’ll enjoy opportunities to visit some extraordinary places at the coast, meet with others who share your interest in the coast and engage with the North Carolina Coastal Federation in unique ways.

Thank you to our current Coastal Society members!
