Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center values our loyal and generous circle of individuals and families whose annual support of $1,000 or above provides a strong foundation for our work.

We call them "Islanders," and their generosity gives:

  • Free programming to middle schoolers through expanded Boston Public School partnerships.
  • Increased opportunities for each student to participate in science and leadership programs.
  • Scholarships for low-income Boston youth to attend summer expeditions.
  • Preservation and maintenance of a pristine island classroom in the Boston Harbor.
