Capital Needs Fundraising
Annual capital fundraising campaigns help Ferry Beach work towards improvements and modernization of the buildings on our 119-year-old campus. Recent capital campaigns brought heating and cooling into our theater building and helped us build an ADA compliant boardwalk to our beach. People and businesses can donate to help us share youth camps, family camps for struggling families and support our efforts to provide art and culture to our community.
Annually, Ferry Beach holds an annual Fall Festival silent auction with items donated from our membership and the local business community. Funds raised at this event are used to help with our operational and maintenance needs.
Corporations may support our facility maintenance and modernization needs by providing monetary or in-kind donations, sponsoring and supporting our events and activities, participating in vendor give-back donations, and by holding corporate events & programs at our facility. Continuing to support our facilities provides more opportunity for our partnerships with other nonprofits and community members.
2020-21 has made life complicated. Traveling is still a challenge and gathering as a group has never been so hard in our lifetimes. Ferry Beach is making it as easy as possible for you to hold a program, event or retreat by opening it up to a in person and online audience. Take advantage of our beautiful facility on the southern Maine coastline, and our dedicated staff team who can work with you to connect your content to those who want to participate from afar.
