What We Support

Shaw Islanders, Inc. through its membership fees and fund-raising efforts, helps support many on-island activities from children’s summer recreation to dinners for people of a certain age. They can be as simple and inexpensive as hosting a candidates’ forum or as complicated and expensive as building a first-class ballfield or remodeling the Community Center’s kitchen.

 Here are some of the activities that we support:

  • Community Center
  • Shaw Island Library and Historical Society
  • Educational Classes
  • Island Kiosk
  • Shaw Island 4-H
  • Island Symphonia
  • Recreational Activities
  • Fourth of July Festivities
  • Shaw Island Directory
  • Birthday Club Dinners
  • Shaw School
  • Public Meetings
  • Candidates’ and Political Forums
  • Other Community Projects
