In addition, visitors can read about the history of Island Medical Center, sign up to receive updates about IH&WF, make a donation, and fill out a grant application. In response to current events, there is even a COVID-19 response page, which contains links to local, state, and national resources related to the pandemic.

Anne West, IH&WF’s Executive Director, explains, “We fund a number of exciting, innovative health initiatives on the Island. For a while, we’ve felt that our website could do a better job showcasing our work and the amazing accomplishments of our grantees. Caroline Goddard, Owner of Bridge Marketing & Communications, was able to use her technology and graphic skills to bring our vision to life. Her combination of knowledge and creativity has resulted in a website that we are very proud to share with the public.”

West concludes, “Island Health & Wellness Foundation has served this community for over 50 years. Thanks to our many supporters, we are able to continue the work that our founders started using modern technology and communication methods.”
