There are many non-profit organizations throughout PEI. Non-profit organizations are associations, clubs, or societies that are not charities and are organized and operated exclusively for social welfare, civic improvement, pleasure, recreation, or any other purpose except profit. Non-profits can be social groups, recreational groups, hobby groups, amateur sport organizations, festival and event organizations, and more. Because non-profits are so varied and provide many different supports or opportunities, many of them are listed throughout this website. Some non-profits are fantastic resources depending on the type of information you are looking for, and most of them are excellent ways to get involved in your community.
