We need your help

Contributing to the health of the Deer Isle-Stonington community has never been easier. 

Support the foundation

Donate today

Our donors work hard for their money and want the funds they donate to do the most good possible. We understand the trust required to make a financial contribution. Here are the reasons our supporters choose to give year after year: 

1) We spend significant time and resources to keep our fingers on the pulse of Island health. We strive to be responsive, committed, and innovative. As a result, your donations fund programming that addresses the most pressing health needs of the Deer Isle-Stonington community.

2) We are your one-stop-shop for supporting local health & wellness. Once you invest your dollars with us, you can rest assured that we’re doing the proper legwork to determine which programs can best meet the needs of our neighbors. Our Board of Directors carefully reviews all requests for grant support and funds them accordingly.

3) From building and maintaining the Island Medical Center to funding programs ranging from reduced-fee dental care to the recruitment of doctors, we have over fifty years of experience leveraging your donations into better health for our community.

Other Ways to Give

A recurring gift creates a reliable source of funding, ensuring health & wellness initiatives are regularly available to Island residents. It is both convenient, customizable, and environmentally friendly. Your monthly or annual gift will be charged automatically and can be modified at any time.

A donation on behalf of a friend of family member is a thoughtful way to honor someone special while supporting a worthwhile cause. Please indicate on your gift if you’d like us to send a note informing the honoree or their family (in cases of memorial gifts) of your contribution.

By designating the foundation as a full or partial beneficiary of your will or trust, life insurance policy, or retirement plan, you will leave a legacy of continued support. Please call Anne West, Executive Director, at 207-367-5851 or email ihwf1966@gmail.com to discuss planned giving options.

Helping has never been easier

The Island Health & Wellness Foundation was built by neighbors asking for contributions door-to-door, and by those who gave their hard-earned dollar. More than 50 years later, we are still just that: neighbors helping neighbors. Every dollar stays in our community.

No amount is too small.

What is IH&WF's mission?

To identify and advocate for the health and wellness needs of Deer Isle-Stonington; provide financial support, guidance, and encouragement to local health and wellness organizations; and maintain the Island Medical Center for the provision of health and dental care.

I would like to thank the Island Health & Wellness Foundation for believing in Camp Kooky and what we at Island Community Center are working hard to provide. Without your generosity and faithful partnership we could not provide a camp for area children. We strive to continue creating wonderful summer memories for children that otherwise might not have that chance to go to summer camp.

Executive Director, Island Community Center

Funding has enabled us to care for more Island residents who cannot afford the full cost of dental care. When life circumstances create financial insecurity, we are able to relieve some of that burden and provide the needed dental care. This can save the patient from unnecessary pain and infection, allow them to eat and speak comfortably, and reduce complications to their overall health.
