The Madrona Insti­tute recent­ly award­ed $45,000 in grants to local non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions based on rev­enues received from sales of the San Juan Islands spe­cial license plate. This was the sec­ond year that the pro­gram has issued grants. 2022 grants include:

  • $10,000 — San Juan Islands Con­ser­va­tion Dis­trict — San Juan Islands Youth Con­ser­va­tion Corps Program
  • $10,000 — Madrona Insti­tute — Coast Sal­ish Youth Stew­ard­ship Corps Program
  • $5,000 — Friends of the San Juans — Youth Envi­ron­men­tal Men­tor­ing Program
  • $5,000 — Alche­my Art Cen­ter — Young Envi­ron­men­tal­ists Arts Inten­sive Program
  • $5,000 — San Juan Islands Agri­cul­tur­al Guild — Farm Heroes for Envi­ron­men­tal Stew­ard­ship Program

  • $5,000 — Chil­dren of the Set­ting Sun Pro­duc­tions — To sup­port the cre­ation of the indige­nous film series and pilot episode “Canoe Journey”

“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,” the Madrona Insti­tute said in a state­ment. “As expect­ed, grant­mak­ing has dou­bled since its first year in 2021, where $22,500 was award­ed. We expect grant mak­ing will con­tin­ue to increase each year as plate sales increase across the coun­ty, region, and state.”
