What is the San Juan Island Community Foundation?

08 Nov 2011, written by

We are a tax-exempt, independent, public charity created by and for San Juan Islanders that seeks to ensure the long-term health of our community by:

  • supporting projects and programs that benefit our citizens, meet community needs and test new ideas and,
  • awarding educational scholarships to deserving San Juan Island students.

Unlike most other charitable organizations that exist to support the needs of a single cause, the Community Foundation helps many of our local non-profits carry out their work in our community.  We apply our funds to as many local needs as possible.

There are more than 700 community foundations across the United States with combined assets of about $35 billion.
