Support us

There are many ways to support SIES.  Because we are a nonprofit organization, we love donations of money.  The Town of Swan's Island donates $12,000 each year to support library and historical collections services for the community.  The remainder of our budget needs to be raised through donations and grants.  Monetary donations are fully deductible according to IRS regulations.

How to Volunteer

Volunteers keep our organization running. Visit our volunteer page for more information.

Financial Contributions

Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.  Please contact your tax preparer or accountant for answers to questions you may have about your financial gift to SIES.

 A credit card may be used to make a financial contribution using our PayPal account. For this convenience, PayPal charges a fee that will reduce your gift by approximately 2.5%.  

You can also mail us a check the old-fashioned way.  Our mailing address is:

Swans Island Educational Society
PO Box 12
Swans Island, ME 04685
