Donations to Pacific Grove Chamber

The hyperbaric chamber in Pacific Grove (maintained by the city) has been inoperational for some time now due to funding issues. The chamber itself requires repairs and while the funding exists to effect those repairs, the city needs assurances of continual funding (to the tune of $10k/year) from the diving community in order to commit to making the repairs and staffing and operating the chamber.

Having a chamber accessible is an invaluable contingency resource for divers. Any amount that you can contribute toward restoring this important resource is greatly appreciated.

To donate to the Pacific Grove chamber, you may send a check to BAUE using the address listed above. Make checks payable to BAUE and include in the memo that it is for the Pacific Grove Chamber. To pay by paypal, please click the following link. This link will automatically earmark it for the Pacific Grove chamber.

BAUE Member Dues

If you are a BAUE member and would like to pay your dues now, please click the link below.

The payment amount is intentionally left blank. This is to allow for pro-rated dues as well as combining dues and a donation, if you so choose (and thus saving an additional transaction fee).

Here is how you calculate the amount to enter:

  • Full year: $75
  • Partial year: $6.25 for every month starting with the beginning of the following month. For example, if you join March 20th, you would start with April. There are 9 months left in the year, so 9 * $6.25 = $56.25
  • Dues + donation. Enter the amount of your dues, as calculated above plus the amount of your desired donation. It is not a requirement to make a donation, but the option is available if you would like to do so.

We also offer the ability to subscribe to a yearly recurring automatic payment. If you would like to remain a BAUE diver in good standing in perpetuity, please use the link below
