Updating Our Directory of Whidbey Nonprofits

We value the great work our Whidbey nonprofits do to improve the quality of lives on the island and are committed to supporting your efforts.

One of our projects is to create a directory of all nonprofits on Whidbey. We have started the database with downloads of information from the Secretary of State and IRS.
