What nonprofit projects are happening now? What resources are available to get a project off the ground? How can I best support the most pressing needs in our community? If you’ve been asking yourself these questions, the San Juan Island Community Foundation is a great place to start.

Founded in 1994, their mission has remained constant: to improve the quality of life of San Juan Island. How do they do it? By helping donors, non-profits and public organizations achieve their goals through direct grants, organizational assistance and philanthropic resource management.
Please join them at an upcoming meet-and-greet event Friday, August 31st from 2 to 5 pm at their office at 640 Mullis Street, #104. Meet the staff, have a bite to eat and bring your questions about how they can help connect your philanthropic interests and goals to current opportunities in our community.

They are excited to share the latest news as well as some recent staff additions:
Jeanne Peihl has returned to the Foundation as Office Assistant to support all administrative aspects of the work and to serve as the coordinator of their robust scholarship program.
Amy Saxe-Eyler joined the team in July as their new Financial and Communications Manager. Amy will be responsible for financial tracking and reporting as well as marketing and outreach efforts to increase engagement with nonprofits and donors.
Carrie Unpingco, Executive Director of the Foundation, adds, “Now that we’re fully staffed, we’re eager to start ramping up our outreach efforts to increase partnerships and continue to make meaningful connections among community members, donors and nonprofits. We hope you’ll stop by Friday or come to visit us another day during our regular office hours.”

The Community Foundation office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5pm. For more information, call us at 360-378-1001 or visit
