Engaging Donors

Connecting people who care with worthy causes; we bring donors to the table as community builders. When we connect donors to community needs and opportunities we build stronger and more resilient citizens and communities.  Our interest is taking the long term view of what is needed to strengthen our Island communities. We take the broadest view of what a community is, and what it needs to succeed.  With the help of our many donors, we build community vitality; that unique and essential spirit that flourishes when people believe their community holds possibilities for everyone.

In 2015 our Foundation ‘channeled’ some $300,000 to individuals, community groups and charitable causes through our various scholarships, awards, community grants and ‘flow throughs’.  Each scholarship, award or grant is the result of someone who cared and who wanted to help out their community in some way.
