Your DONATION supports the work of Island Heritage Trust and protects the natural beauty Deer Isle has to offer.

The Island Heritage Trust is a non-profit land trust contributing to the well-being of the island community by conserving its distinctive landscapes and natural resources, maintaining public access to valued trails, shoreline and islands, and by providing educational programming for all ages. Be a part of this good work!

Island Heritage Trust depends on your tax-deductible DONATION to continue to care for and protect the 1,455 acres under our care.

***The Cares Act passed earlier this year allows donors to write off charitable contributions for up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income. (In the past it was 60 percent.) Even if you don’t itemize your deductions, you can still deduct up to $300 in cash gifts to public charities like IHT.  Please consult your tax advisor for details.

  • Join our LUNA SOCIETY by selecting recurring gifts: a great way to pledge your commitment to the work of IHT that is easier on your budget and adds up to sustainable support.
  • Become a Business Member with a gift of $100 and up – your business or organization will be promoted through our many channels. Contact for details.
  • Become a Major Supporter. This is a level of commitment by those who are able and willing to support our annual operating costs with unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more. These donors provide critical annual financial support, receive special updates from our Executive Director, and are invited to attend dedicated annual events.
