Beckstein Fund awards
$200,000 to Mote SEA

The Beckstein Charitable Fund of the Manatee Community Foundation has awarded a $200,000 grant to Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium’s Science Education Aquarium (SEA). The fund has provided $250,000 to Mote SEA since 2018.

Mote SEA is planned for 12 acres in Nathan Benderson Park. The site will double the number of residents and visitors within an hour’s drive of Mote’s outreach facility. Its interactive teaching labs will be accessible to all schools in the region, including no-cost opportunities.

“Our community is so very fortunate to have leading Manatee County philanthropists Gene and Anne Beckstein embrace Mote’s vision of ‘Oceans for All,’” Mote president and CEO Michael Crosby said. “Their leadership gift to this campaign for the Science Education Aquarium is setting the pace to ensure the new facility’s educational programs become a reality for all the K-12 school children in Manatee County.”
