Throughout the year, the ISLE Society Committee hosts parties on Thompson Island (lawn games, open bar, clam bakes…) giving our friends the chance to experience the Island and the organization’s mission. Additionally, members gather several times each year for networking opportunities, volunteer days, and other meet-ups.
In an effort to engage the next generation of philanthropists we continue to grow the ISLE Society through outreach efforts from our Isle Society Committee. We courage ISLE members to join for a small annual fee for access to all ISLE events for free or for a discount. These gatherings will be available for a fee for Friends of the ISLE Society, with encouragement to consider membership themselves.
