About IPP



IPP's mission is to create opportunities and foster connections for everyone on Fishers Island by providing cultural events, educational programs, and natural spaces throughout the year. ‌ ‌

‌With Community, For Community!


Founded in 1967

The Island People's Project was founded in 1967 as an educational day program that met on the baseball field. Its principal mission was to unite year-round residents with the summer community.


50+ years later

Today, 50+ years later, thanks to your ongoing support, IPP manages natural spaces, sponsors cultural events and programs year-round, and continues to run The Morning Program, the island’s only summer day program for all our children.


With your help!

IPP looks forward to continuing its care for and oversight of Dock Beach and the baseball field, ‌and to continue bringing family-friendly events ‌and programs to our Fishers Island Community year round.‌
