Your Community. Your Community Foundation.
The San Juan Island Community Foundation was established in 1994 by a diverse group of islanders who wanted to support the quality of life on San Juan Island. They witnessed the important work being done by local nonprofit organizations and recognized the value of investing in their own community.
Over the years, families, estates, individuals and organizations have used the Community Foundation to support their giving and the quality of island life.
The Community Foundation is unique among nonprofit organizations, because we aim to be a resource for both our donors and our community nonprofit organizations. The San Juan Island Community Foundation provides knowledge and expertise on both sides of the philanthropic exchange. We distribute grants to support and advance local nonprofit activities and projects. We identify current and emerging issues and critical needs. We find ways to address short and long-term needs and help support a healthy thriving community on San Juan Island.
Our aim is to provide exceptional philanthropic guidance and service to our donors. Whatever your charitable budget, we are here to help you give wisely and have the impact you want.
Our work with community nonprofits is not limited to grant making. We are cultivating a strong leadership role in the community supporting nonprofits with advice and resources.
The San Juan Island Community Foundation is a federally qualified 501(c)(3) organization and is registered with the Secretary of State in Olympia, Washington.
