The San Juan Island Community Foundations web page states they have “a simple mission: to ensure and enhance the quality of life on San Juan Island…by channeling gifts of money from private and corporate donors into a permanent endowment, professionally invested and managed through the Seattle Foundation.” That would be, so to speak:, their day job.

At their SJC fair booth this year they came up with a fun way to gain publicity, donations, and still give back to the community. The idea was to have an election based on, well not quite a democratic model -unless buying votes counts- but the idea was that the top three vote getters would receive a donation from the Foundation. Catch was, it cost $1.00 per vote; and with no limit on how many times one could vote.

Clever, fun and productive. The top three voter getters were EMS (Emergency Medical Services), the Home Trust and the SJI Rotary Club.
