Foundation doubles down on your donations, at the Fair

The San Juan Island Community Foundation will match up to 50 percent match all donations made during the Fair.

Ten community non-profits will be assisted: the Friday Harbor Food Bank, Art in our Schools, the Women's Fund, the county Arts Council, Island Stage Left, the San Juan Career Training Program, The Whale Museum, the community foundation's general scholarship Fund, St. David's Kindergarten Readiness and Enrichment Program and the Healthy Community Fund.

Representatives from these non-profits will be available to answer questions about individual projects. Donations can be made at the Community Foundation's on-line giving center, located at the foundation's Main Hall Fair booth.

Additionally, a drawing from all donors will entitle the winner to designate an additional $500 to one of the above projects.
