Sorry, this fundraiser is closed and no longer accepting contributions.


Thank you for visiting "Dive Into Reading" with the History of Diving Museum. We are excited you are here to help. Be our buddies in charitable giving by supporting education. Our goal is to provide Shark Rider, a fiction novel laced with science, for summer reading to all 4th graders in the Florida Keys and include a fun essay contest.

With our first level schools from the Upper Keys to Sugarloaf Key will be sponsored. All participants will get a family pass and wristband, upon completion of their assignment. Essays will be judged and winners from each school will be invited to a reception at HDM that includes a skype session with the author, Ellen Prager. Please help us reach out to students. Last year's reading program with Shark Whisperer was a success, with your help this year will be even better! Your support means so much to their growth and new experiences. Click here to donate NOW!

Your generous donations also support HDM visiting classrooms to do presentations for elementary students on topics such as early marine biology and salvage operations of the 1733 Spanish fleet off the coast of the Florida Keys, sharing our mission to inform and educate the public on man’s quest to explore under the sea.

* With additional contributions of $8,750 we can extend the program down to Key West! 

With much gratitude for your consideration and assistance,
Lisa Mongelia, Museum Director
