The beauty of Orcas Island is more than skin deep. This comprehensive list of nonprofits and service organizations is an indicator of the breadth of our care and concern for the quality of life on Orcas. Often governed and staffed by volunteers and operated by donation and grants, these organizations meet the varied needs of our community.

Working with local high school senior Iris Parker Pavitt, OICF compiled this directory of service organizations serving Orcas Island. The listings include contact information and mission statements to connect donors, volunteers, and those in need to the organization and services.
