Grants And Matching Gifts

We are actively seeking grants from foundations and other philanthropic entities. Please contact Peter Squires, Director of Development at (603) 430-6272 or by email at if you are aware of any grant opportunities.

Matching gifts can double or even triple the gift that you give. We appreciate when Shoalers let us know that the company or corporation they work for matches their gift to an educational, preservation, or other program of the Star Island Corporation. Call Michael Bray at (603) 430-6272 to ask questions about matching gifts or consult the list of companies at
