SeaQuest partners with community based organizations in the areas we operate to ensure that we do our part to support local needs. SeaQuest Cares supports a variety of causes throughout the year.
We partner with organizations that uphold our commitment to support children’s programs. Several of the programs we hold dear include those that provide better homes for children through foster parent programs, as well as efforts that benefit children who are ill or who have disabilities.
We partner with school districts and Educational efforts like backpack drives, school night out fundraisers and with discounts on field trips for Title 1 schools.
We believe in making our aquarium accessible to everyone. People with disabilities face many challenges, but their disabilities shouldn’t prevent them from educational activities. SeaQuest partners with RISE Services of Utah, the largest provider of services for people with disabilities in the state. RISE Services is a nonprofit that provides support to children and adults with developmental disabilities or mental health needs.
Disabled people receiving support from RISE Services visit the aquarium regularly, free of charge. We’re grateful for the opportunity we have to give people with disabilities the opportunity to interact with amazing animals and enjoy our aquarium.
Local Organization Support
SeaQuest strives to be a pillar in our community. We regularly donate memberships, day passes and more to local schools, churches, nonprofit organizations and a variety of other fundraising efforts. In Utah, we are proud donors to The Ronald McDonald House, Hope Center Utah, ALS Rocky Mountain Chapter, The Sharing Place, Muscular Dystrophy Association, DeafBlind Advocacy of Utah, Habitat for Humanity, Hill Air Force Base Good Samaritan Committee and many more.
Foster Children Programs
Many children in foster care don’t get the opportunity to enjoy the typical childhood experiences that other children have. SeaQuest is proud to partner with community based organizations to break the cycle of child abuse and raise the standards for how Utah’s children in foster care are treated.
SeaQuest helps foster families treat the children in their care to a fun, educational experience that they will remember for years to come. Foster children are always welcome, free of charge, to any SeaQuest location year-round.
