Galveston Bay Foundation’s Heron Society is our premier giving society for generous individuals or couples who support our operations and programs through annual contributions of $1,000 or more.
We invite you to join an exceptional group of community leaders and volunteer champions whose generosity is leading the way to a Bay brimming with vitality and contributing to the community in every possible way.
The Heron Society recognizes these individuals for their outstanding leadership and serves as a platform to inspire others to also take action that protects the Bay and its watershed for future generations. Galveston Bay Foundation recognizes individuals and households as Heron Society members in recognition of their cumulative, annual personal gifts, and commitments of $1,000 or more each year.
Heron Society members receive special invitations to exclusive Galveston Bay Foundation events and are offered opportunities to grow their involvement and understanding in the work of Galveston Bay Foundation. Please join us!
