What is the Seashore Defense Fund?
The Seashore Defense Fund is an emergency funding mechanism of FIPPOA that allows for immediate action when catastrophe faces Fire Island Pines’ most valuable asset—its incomparable beaches. The fund is used as needed to lend support for preservation and maintenance measures and to augment larger initiatives like beach reclamation. It is important to maintain a healthy reserve to ensure the community can respond in a timely way to any threat to our magnificent natural asset.
As we look forward to the 2019 season on the beach, we are excited to announce that through your very generous donations, the Seashore Defense Fund has amassed over $150,000. Ultimately, these donations will be used for only one purpose; to assure that our beaches are ready for you to play on, explore and enjoy. Thank you!
