Become a Business Partner

Hurricane Island’s Business Partners support student programs both on Hurricane Island and in Maine schools year-round.

Business Partners Program

At Hurricane Island, our mission is to integrate science education, applied research, and leadership development through year-round, educational programs and a seasonal, environmentally-sustainable island community.

Hurricane Island thrives on the support from our community, for everything from volunteer efforts to supporting scholarship programs to event sponsorship. When you join our Business Partners Program, your generous support will impact our effort to close the achievement gap in Maine and in your community, ensuring that students of all ages can access our year-round, hands-on field experiences. Your partnership means:

  • More students will get to utilize our experiential “classroom” and become real scientists at our field research station
  • Provide scholarship assistance to underserved youth from Maine and beyond 
  • Purchase essential science, safety, and infrastructure equipment, such as bird banding kits, binoculars, and lifejackets
  • Preserve and protect the natural wonder of Hurricane Island and its ecosystem

Workplace Giving

Want to increase your impact? Ask your employer if they participate in corporate matching gift programs. This will provide you with the opportunity to increase the impact of your gift by doubling your tax-deductible contribution. If your company has a matching gift program, obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your employer and send it to Hurricane Island along with your donation. We will complete the form and forward it to your employer’s matching gifts office for processing. The company will then send its matching donation directly to us.

Please tell these businesses that you are grateful for their engagement with the important work we do to increase STEM proficiency in the region!
