Community Inspired • Partner Driven
Together We Work to Improve Health & Well Being
Healthy Peninsula's primary purpose is to improve the health and well being of the residents of the Blue Hill Peninsula, Deer Isle, and Stonington by mobilizing, supporting, and collaborating with community partners. Serving the interests of all, from the tiniest newborns to our aging seniors, our work is based in challenges and needs defined by the communities themselves, and our three major initiatives implement proven strategies individualized to each community through programs, services, and networks informed by local voices.
In a recent conversation with the IRS, we were told that due to a "programming issue," we are not showing up as a 501(c)(3) non-profit on the GuideStar website. The IRS reported that the problem will be fixed "within two months." Meanwhile, they will be sending us a letter of affirmation to prove our status. Please let us know if you would like a copy of the letter. Thanks for your understanding!
