These families and friends of Beaver Island made five and six figure gifts ranging from $10,000 to $250,000 to purchase and clean-up the site, and build and equip the Community Center. Without these generous donations, the Center would not be here for residents and visitors to enjoy. These families and friends now invite others to join them in making the Center forever sustainable without a tax burden. Our goal is to have 10 more Founding Families & Friends help eliminate the Center’s debt and build its endowment. The entire Island community benefits from and remains grateful for their great generosity and caring.
