FRIDAY HARBOR, WA – The fourth annual Friday Harbor Film Festival, which will be held November 4–5- 6, would like to thank the San Juan Island Community Foundation for their support. Through a grant, the Festival was able to enhance the sound quality at four different venues including: Brickworks, Earthbox, Friday Harbor House, and the Grange.
The San Juan Island Community Foundation was established in 1994 by a diverse group of islanders who wanted to support the quality of life on San Juan Island. They witnessed the important work being done by local nonprofit organizations and recognized the value of investing in their own community.
Over the years, families, estates, individuals and organizations have used the Community Foundation to support their giving and the quality of island life.
The Community Foundation is unique among nonprofit organizations, because we aim to be a resource for both our donors and our community nonprofit organizations. The San Juan Island Community Foundation provides knowledge and expertise on both sides of the philanthropic exchange. We distribute grants to support and advance local nonprofit activities and projects. We identify current and emerging issues and critical needs. We find ways to address short and long-term needs and help support a healthy thriving community on San Juan Island. For more information on the Foundation, please visit, http://sjicf.org/
Throughout the weekend of November 4–5-6, the Friday Harbor Film Festival will feature quality documentaries and docu-dramas that highlight compelling stories about humanitarian efforts, environmental issues, social concerns and daring explorations. Each film will be followed by lively discussion with the filmmaker or a local expert.
