Please Support the Annual Appeal

by Jane Ahrens

Here we are in our 10th year with a redesigned and rebuilt website including some great new features and updated magazine style look!

We are so grateful for our readers, subscribers, advertisers, and everyone out there that checks into regularly.

Many of you received the Annual Appeal mailing with our small gift of appreciation in the form of a few Fishers postcards. Please consider a gift online with easy access using the QR code at right, or by mail.

The Island’s communications are supported financially by grant funds, advertising income, and mostly by donations from our readers.

These funds cover the costs of running the primary website for Fishers Island, NY. Expenses include the monthly hosting fees to the website and e-newsletter companies, several special widgets, editor’s hourly salary, back-end support, website update work including efforts to thwart brute force attacks from cyberbullying, and annual appeal efforts.
