'Tis the SEAson

During the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy to overlook the true meaning of the season and even harder to remember that giving is better than recieving.  So we invite you to celebrate the island you love by making a tax-deductible charitable gift to the BHI Conservancy.

Your holiday gift will make a real and meaningful difference preserving the natural beauty of Bald Head Island, impacting coastal communities and providing hands-on environmental education opportunities for all ages.

THANK YOU in advance for remembering the BHI Conservancy — and your favorite island— this holiday season!
