Fishline serves the North Kitsap Community by providing food, emergency services and resources to transform lives. Their vision is a community where a safety net exists for all people, which includes adequate food, shelter, healthcare and employment.
There are numerous ways you can contribute and even the smallest of acts make a huge impact.
Helpline House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a network of critical social services through several different programs – including children services, senior services, financial assistance and a food bank. The agency’s programs help more than 2,500 people every year. Neighbor helping neighbor, one neighbor at a time.
Bainbridge Island Senior/Community Center
The Bainbridge Island Senior Center is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit that participates in the community One Call for All program. Your gift of over $20 through One Call for All earns them a “share” of the Community Fund, so your gift has an even bigger impact!
Bainbridge Island Land Trust
As a membership-based non-profit (EIN 91-1439338), the Bainbridge Island Land Trust receives its funding from generous Islanders and others who want to support lasting and real action on Bainbridge – from the acquisition of new land to the removal of invasive plants and replanting with native species, and stewardship of sensitive ecosystems and protection of wildlife habitats. Supporters also give thousands of volunteer hours out on the land, in the office, or serving on the board or one of their 6 committees. The Land Trust welcomes all to join in its land conservation work!
