The Island Institute works to sustain Maine’s island and coastal communities. Through our efforts to support local small business owners and the marine economy, improve broadband connectivity and adaptation to climate impacts, and enhance education and workforce opportunities for students and teachers across the islands, our work helps these communities identify and address the critical challenges they face.
We offer a variety of membership levels and ways to get involved with the Institute, and we are proud to have a strong donor base that allows us to continue this important work. Learn more and join our efforts today!
