2020 CONSTITUTION ISLAND CAMPAIGN
The Constitution Island Association will be conducting a $750,000 campaign to refurbish its stored contents including furniture, paintings, and wall coverings. These efforts will match an existing $750,000 grant from New York State, meaning every dollar raised will bring a matching dollar to the Campaign and a step toward reaching the $1.5 million needed to fund the work. All donors will be recognized after the conclusion of the Campaign on an attractive donor wall in the adjacent Education Center where all tours currently begin, and an annual list of donors will be maintained at the Center during the Campaign. Gifts will be accepted in the form of cash, appreciated securities including stock and insurance, and planned gifts including trusts. Gift pledges will also be accepted but must be completed by the March 1, 2023 deadline. The Association will be conducting the Campaign based on our core fundraising principles and not-for-profit accounting standards, including gift acknowledgment letters.
The mission of Constitution Island Association is to provide a rewarding educational and recreational experience through the commemoration and preservation of the historic, cultural, and ecological treasure that is Constitution Island. Founded in 1916, the Association is a 501-C-3, not-for-profit organization, and is managed by a voluntary board of trustees comprised of representatives committed to its mission.
