Donor Support

The Foundation is a non-profit organization whose donations are tax-deductible. In the course of our efforts in the public trust we have been pleased to receive the support of over 2,000 donors.

We hope you will join them.  Some  donors have supported us with direct contributions  sent to ELPTF at PO Box 174, Niantic, Ct. 06357. Many others have given through our various commemorative programs, often done in cooperation with the East Lyme Parks & Recreation Department.

These include the commemorative plaques and benches that are installed on the Niantic Bay Boardwalk and Beach, The Promise of Tomorrow’s Trees tree- plantings in town parks, and special projects, such as the educational signs on the Niantic Bay Boardwalk and Beach.  The first 50 bench donors and 451 plaque donors are listed in the Ribbon cutting brochure of July 15, 2005.

The number of  commemorative plaques is now over 1,700 and continues to be very popular. The bench project, recently completed, totaled 200.
