For the first time in three years, San Juan Islanders will get together in person for four days of community celebration, education, and entertainment at the San Juan County Fair. To help translate that community spirit into action in the weeks and months that follow, The San Juan Island Community Foundation (SJICF) is preparing to launch its 2022 County Fair Giving Campaign.
This year, 30 island nonprofits are working with SJICF to raise funds for a broad array of community-focused projects during the four days of the Fair.
The San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA) is raising funds for an exciting expansion to our Docent Program as follows:
Explore. Excite. Educate.
This new docent program will expand accessibility to SJIMA’s world-class exhibitions for children in K-8. We plan to develop age-appropriate guided tours and a syllabus to train future docents.
Program development includes the study of other museum programs for children, interviews, research, role-playing, private training classes, and printing.
SJIMA aims to provide arts engagements that bring meaning and joy into our human experience.
Fundraising Goal = $ 2900
