It Only Takes a Moment for You to Change the Future
Esther is a charter member of the Aquarium of the Pacific. And like so many of you, Esther is very proud of her membership since she knows that she is helping fund the educational programs that make the Aquarium such a wonderful place for children to learn about the Pacific Ocean.
Esther's interest in the Pacific Ocean has been a lifelong passion. From scuba diving to underwater photography, Esther's dedication to the marine environment has always been a priority. Despite a busy career of 11 years with the L.A. County of Agricultural Department, as a teacher, and now as manager of her company, Giant Panda Real Estate, she has always found time to dive, explore, and learn about the oceans around the world.
Recently, Esther made an important decision to support the Aquarium through a bequest. This type of planned gift is a provision in her will that directs a portion of her estate to the Aquarium of the Pacific.
"I am fortunate to have experienced the wonders of the world's oceans and want to make sure that others are able to enjoy those same experiences. I feel good knowing that my gift will help future generations benefit from the educational opportunities at the Aquarium of the Pacific."

You can also leave a lifelong legacy and etch an enduring presence in the struggle to protect the environment and the natural world with a bequest, a charitable gift annuity, or one of many other planned gifts. Planned gifts are popular because they often allow donors and their families to receive significant gift, income, and estate tax benefits, and often provide a generous annual income stream for the life of one or more beneficiaries.
Please explore the sidebar menu to learn more about planned gift opportunities and the Nautilus Society, contact Ryan Ashton at 562-951-1701 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
