2017 President's Letter

I am most pleased to report that the Farm Neck Foundation was again able to contribute over $79,000 to a wide variety of worthy Island entities during this past year - all thanks to our generous membership and members-in-waiting.

This past year we were able to offer assistance to sixteen Island organizations with grants ranging from $1,500 to $5,000, totaling over $44,000. On top of that, we made two additional grants to two highly regarded Island organizations working hard to reach the finish line in their respective capital campaigns. To the MV Ice Arena we made a gift of $25,000 to assist in their long planned renovations to the rink. To Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary we donated $10,000 to help fund their dream to construct a new camp and education barn. The complete listing of our 2016 donations and contributions is detailed on the following pages for your review.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, as well as everyone you have helped lift up in times of need, please accept our sincere thanks for your continued commitment to "give back" whenever and wherever we can. You're the reason that we have been able to make a real and lasting difference for so many. Without your generosity, our good intentions would remain nothing more than that.

Thank You Again.

Timothy D. Sweet
