San Juan Island’s Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion will sup­port local non-prof­its with match­ing funds and bonus grants dur­ing this year’s Vir­tu­al Fair. Funds raised for the Mullis Cen­ter will go to help fund our Green and Clean Project as high­light­ed in detail in the recent arti­cle in the San Juan Update, Island Senior: Mullis Cen­ter Upgrade For A Green Future.

The four-year project is designed to cre­ate a health­i­er and more ener­gy-effi­cient facil­i­ty to meet the future needs of our grow­ing senior pop­u­la­tion and community.

Already com­plet­ed is the switch to LED light­ing, water effi­cient fix­tures and appli­ances, a new HVAC and Solar Elec­tric sys­tems, and final­ly we are cur­rent­ly upgrad­ing roof­ing, insu­la­tion and ven­ti­la­tion so the cen­ter will tru­ly be clean, green, and ready for a bright future when at last we re-open!

The San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion has set up a pro­gram to match funds for the first $1,000 raised for each non-prof­it dur­ing the Vir­tu­al Fair plus con­tests each day start­ing August 18 adding to the fundrais­ing and the fun!

Dai­ly Con­tests include…

  • August 18th: $500 bonus grant to non­prof­it receiv­ing the high­est total $ val­ue for online donations –
  •  August 19th: $500 bonus grant to non­prof­it receiv­ing the high­est # of online dona­tions • _Must be unique donors (exam­ple – donors can’t give $5 dona­tion 20 times; your dog can not donate with your cred­it card; kids CAN donate with your cred­it card – great way to involve them in local philanthropy!) –
  • August 20th: SJICF will post an obscure SJI triv­ia ques­tion on Face­book. Any­one can email their answer to SJICF (no Face­book com­ments accept­ed). The cor­rect answers giv­en on this day will be entered in a drawing. –
  • August 21st: Triv­ia draw­ing; win­ner picks favorite non­prof­it to receive a $500 bonus grant! –
  • August 22nd: FINAL PUSHto donors; all donors will be entered in a final draw­ing at the end of the pro­gram. Win­ner gets to choose which non­prof­it will get the $1,000 bonus grant.
