Donate & Support

Making a donation to the effort to obtain a legally set apart beach for Naturist/Clothing-optional use on the Gulf Coast of Florida does far more than support Gulf Beach Naturists.  Your donation directly supports B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute, an organization founded in 1992 by Shirley Mason after her successful fight to obtain a portion of Miami-Dade County’s Haulover Beach for Naturist use.

B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute, in turn, mentors local Naturist beach organizations, sharing a model for keeping Naturist/Clothing-optional beaches legal, safe, inclusive, and family-oriented.   From educating and certifying Beach Ambassadors, keeping Naturist beaches handicapped accessible, clean, and family-oriented to raising money for improvements to Naturist beaches, B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute has a proven track record of giving back to the communities where Naturist beaches have already been established.  B.E.A.C.H.E.S. most recent success has been the result of working with Treasure Coast Naturists to obtain a portion of Blind Creek Beach in St. Lucie County for Naturist use.

B.E.A.C.H.E.S’s current mission is to strengthen protections for Naturists in Florida by having those protections added to Florida Statute 800.03.  It is also vital to have Florida Department of Environmental Protection State Park’s rules changed to set apart Naturist-use areas on State Park lands that will benefit Naturist Recreation for generations to come!

Gulf Beach Naturists asks that when you make your donation, you add “GBN” to the memo line of your check or in the comments section of your online payment.
