Other Ways to Support
Program, Event or Project Sponsorship
Consider a business or personal sponsorship of our popular Solstice by the Sea or other event. Our Science Squad programs for kids can also be sponsored. Sponsorships are a great way to gain recognition for your business or honor a loved one while supporting FOSI’s work.
Maine’s returnable container law (aka the “Bottle Bill”) means that most people have bottles and cans that must be returned for recycling. If you return your deposit bottles and cans to a CLYNK kiosk, you can designate all or some of your refund to go to FOSI.
It’s easy to do: set up an account at CLYNK.com, then load your returnable bottles and cans into a CLYNK bag and drop it off at a designated CLYNK kiosk at a Hannaford supermarket.
If you shop on Amazon, the AmazonSmile program donates 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to a charity of your choice.
Go to smile.amazon.com next time you place an order to learn more and select FOSI from the list of eligible charities.
Help Sears Island thrive for generations to come by naming FOSI as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or in your estate plan. Contact us or your estate planner for more information.
