How the donation process works

You can donate to Friends online, using either PayPal or by credit card. You can donate any amount greater than $1.00. Suggested support levels are:

$1,000+ Legacy
$500 Stockton Island
$250 Oak Island
$100 Sand Island
$50 Golden Anniversary
$25 Friend

When you click the Donate button on the Friends website, you are taken to this secure web page, hosted by PayPal.

Here you enter your amount and whether you wish to make this donation on a monthly basis.

As the last step on this screen, choose your payment method.

If you choose Donate with PayPal, you will be taken to the PayPal login screen unless you are already logged into PayPal. Proceed with that process. As an option on this screen, you can choose to pay by debit card or credit card.

If instead of choosing the PayPal option, you chose “Donate with a Debit Card or Credit Card,” you will see a screen that looks like this. Again, you have the option to donate on a monthly basis if you have not already chosen that option.

Fill in your credit card and contact information. We do appreciate it when you allow us at the Friends to receive your mailing address.

Click the “Donate Now” button to complete the donation.

You do have the option to create a PayPal account but it is not mandatory. If you choose “Save this information for next time,” you will be creating a PayPal account.

If you have any technical issues with the online system, please email us and we’ll help.

No matter how you donate, you will see a donation confirmation screen next and you will be returned to the Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore website home page.

If you wish to donate by sending us a check by mail, please download this form and include it with your check. Thank you for in advance for your donation. If you’re looking for more ways to support the Friends, visit this page.

All our supporting contributors will receive our newsletter, E-Blasts, notification of special events, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to support the beautiful islands that we all love.
