The Island Association is dedicated to the preservation of Madeline Island's beauty and enhancement of Island culture by providing grant funding opportunities for island non-profit organizations.
The Island Association is a nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board consisting of year-round and summer residents on Madeline Island in the Town of La Pointe, WI. Our operations are made possible by annual memberships, fundraisers and additional contributions to our general and designated funds. This income enables us to provide grants for local non-profits and civic groups that help us accomplish our mission. Our designated funds provide scholarships for Island High School graduates, training support for E.M.T.s and funding for the P.S.A./La Pointe Elementary School.
The purpose of the Island Association is to help in the preservation and enhancement of Madeline Island for its residents, both permanent and seasonal, as well as its visitors. The Island Association will accomplish this by directing financial and other resources to projects which are cultural, educational, celebratory, and health-and safety-oriented in nature. It is also a vehicle through which members can provide input that has tangible effects on the Island, and whereby anyone can donate resources to projects sponsored by the Association.
