Madrona Institute Awards Stewardship Grants

Posted September 18, 2021 at 9:56 am by

The Madrona Insti­tute has award­ed $22,500 in grants to local non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions in its first year of grant mak­ing based on rev­enues received from sales of the San Juan Islands Spe­cial License Plate.

This year’s grantees include:

  • San Juan Islands Con­ser­va­tion Dis­trict for their San Juan Islands Youth Con­ser­va­tion Corps ($6,000),
  • Friends of the San Juans for their Youth Envi­ron­men­tal Men­tor­ing Pro­gram ($5,000)
  • Alche­my Art Cen­ter for their Young Envi­ron­men­tal­ists Art Inten­sive & Exhib­it Pro­gram ($5,000)
  • Coast Sal­ish Youth Stew­ard­ship Corps oper­at­ed by The Madrona Insti­tute ($4,000)
  • Indige­nous Edu­ca­tion Insti­tute for their Indige­nous Speak­er Series – A Sense of Place in the Pacif­ic North­west: Indige­nous Per­spec­tives on Land, Water, and Sky ($2,500).

Awards are made on an annu­al basis for local projects and pro­grams that sup­port the con­ser­va­tion and stew­ard­ship of agri­cul­tur­al, cul­tur­al, his­toric, and nat­ur­al resources in the islands, with empha­sis on youth engage­ment.  It is expect­ed that grant mak­ing will increase each year as plate sales increase across the coun­ty, region, and state.
