In the early days, LBIF served a small but growing summertime, beach community but times have changed. Today, the LBIF has expanded to meet the needs of a much greater community-at-large. In the last five years, the LBIF has expanded into a year-round organization. During 2016, over 7,000 people attended events produced by our programs, events, classes, performances, volunteer days, and not-for-profit partners. Everything we do is open to the public and nearly everyone can find something of interest.
With the assistance of some wonderful donors LBIF has provided tuition free art and science classes to deserving students. LBIF also provides events like the tennis outing for special needs kids.
Without the support of our local businesses and community, the LBIF would not be able to preserve the arts/sciences/culture on LBI and the surrounding areas. Sponsorship at the LBIF helps to support LBIF’s mission of offering affordable arts and sciences programs to the LBI and surrounding community. Since we are a nonprofit organization, the more we receive, the more we give.
You are invited to become general sponsor or to lend you support to an activity or activity of special interest to you or to you customer base.
