    Each year the Mid-Atlantic Marine Aquarists Society donates proceeds to a worthy cause in an effort to help protect, clean and sustain our world's reefs and marine life. That charity is selected by you, the hobbyists who support our organization and make these donations possible. Take a moment to review our 2015 charity selections and vote for the one you feel deserves our support. If you can't make it to MAMAX, follow the links to the charity of your choice and donate toward their cause.
