What is The Recompense Fund?

The Recompense Fund is Chebeague Island’s community fund working to sustain our year-round island community through support to its nonprofit organizations.

The Recompense Fund was founded in 2014 as a small fund. It has rapidly grown from a single donor to over 400 who give generously of their resources and ideas.
