The Fox Island Chapel
We enthusiastically invite you to select an avenue of support and join us now!
A community-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Chapel Preservation Society depends on private support and the hard work of its dedicated volunteers to preserve the facility and fulfill its educational and cultural mission.
There are numerous avenues for individuals, corporations and foundations to support the Chapel on Echo Bay.
Volunteerism. The physical maintenance of the property as well as the planning and execution of public and private programming relies heavily on the hundreds of hours donated by volunteers. Tackling tasks, from grounds-keeping to governance, dedicated individuals take time away from their daily activities to give back to this unique local charity.
In May 2017, the CPS Volunteer League was founded to better formalize the search for helping hands. As the occasion arises, the League Director sends out an email describing the need for volunteers, and individuals can respond as time and interests permit. Typical requests are for assistance with events, parties, concerts, and hoc committees such as gardening and routine venue upkeep. To become a member of the League, send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Capital Donations: Occasionally capital needs arise in order to restore and/or maintain the integrity of this hundred-year-old facility. The Board just completed a campaign to restore the landmark’s steeple to its original glory. Designated capital donations are essential for repairs like this and other projects as the elements take their toll and the facility cries for a bit of a facelift.
Memory Lane Walkway. Memory Lane Walkway is the meandering path from the upper level in front of the Chapel through the memorial gardens to the waterfront garden below at the entrance to the Chapel Reception Room. Eventually 1000 bricks will line the walkway. The cost is $125 for a Memory Lane brick that will become a part of this historic site. Each engraved brick holds up to three lines of copy, each holding 18 characters including spaces. Buy one as a gift, to remember a loved one, to surprise a special person, or just to express yourself!
The Preservation Society Donation/Membership Form can be used to express volunteer interest, become members of the Society, purchase a Memory Lane Walkway brick or make a designated capital donation for the on-going restoration and preservation of The Chapel on Echo Bay. Paypal accepted.
