The Sable Island Institute
The Sable Island Institute is a multidisciplinary organization with purposes: to support the protection of the environment through research and environmental monitoring programs on Sable Island; to advance public education by providing educational programs about Sable Island for school children and life-long learners; and to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by producing Sable Island artistic works for public display awareness and enjoyment.
The Sable Island Institute is a corporation registered under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and it is a charity registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. We operate using resources secured through fundraising activities, donations and, where possible, grants and partnerships.
Our work depends on the support of people and communities that care about Sable Island. Our Board members and our personnel are volunteers and your donation will go directly to the operations and the work of the Sable Island Institute – to support and promote the protection and conservation of the natural and cultural values of Sable Island through research, collaboration, and education.
Please consider donating what you can. Receipts for income tax purposes are issued for all donations of $20 or more. To issue tax receipts, we require your full name (including initials) and civic address. And, if you have an e-mail address, please include it so we can email your tax receipt and save the cost of mailing.
