Red Envelopes have arrived

There were simple pledge cards in the early years. By Brian Kelly

Volunteers went door to door to support the Bainbridge Foundation and its “One Call for All.” They asked their fellow islanders to take a pledge card, check a box for a weekly, monthly or quarterly donation, and put a mark next to the charity of their choice. There weren’t many charities to support in the first years of the once-a-year collection effort, Bainbridge’s grassroots drive for funds for local and national health and welfare organizations. Boxes on the pledge cards for donors to check simply offered choices such as “cancer,” “the blind,” “polio” and “muscular dystrophy.” There were a few Bainbridge choices, however, such as Bainbridge Ambulance and the Bainbridge Library maintenance

fund, and familiar organizations including the Red Cross, Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls. Right from the start, though, islanders showed their compassion and generosity. A total of $15,250 was raised that first year, in 1960, and the amount of donations grew with each passing campaign. Gone are the days of a volunteer’s knock at the door. Instead, One Call for All arrives each October with the nowfamiliar red envelope in local mailboxes. Along with growing needs, and more places where islanders can lend a hand — One Call for All now directs funds to 103 local nonprofits — the Red Envelope campaign has made a meaningful impact for many in the Bainbridge community. One Call for All has distributed more than $10 million to nonprofit organizations during the past 10 years. Where the money goes each year, of course, is decided by those who give. One hundred percent of the donations received by One Call for All goes to the recipients selected by the givers. No operating costs for One Call for All come

from donations, unless specifically noted by the donor. Choices run the gamut, from: • Youth services and organizations (including Kiwanis, the Boys & Girls Club, youth scholarships, local sports clubs and more); • Health and human services providers (including nonprofits such as the Bainbridge Island Special Needs Foundation, Helpline House, Hope House and Island Volunteer Caregivers and others); • Environment and recreation (Bainbridge Island Land Trust, Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation, West Sound Wildlife Shelter and more); • Arts and humanities (cultural institutions such as the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, as well as vital community mainstays such as Bainbridge Performing Arts, Ovation! Performing Arts Northwest and Island Theatre); • Off-Island organizations (the list includes Kitsap Humane Society, Meals on Wheels Kitsap, and United Way of King County); and


• Community outreach and enrichment groups, emergency services and nonprofits focused on schools and early childhood education. A full list of Red Envelope nonprofits can be found on One Call for All’s website, located at onecallforall.org. (Donors can also visit the website to make a direct, tax-deductible contribution with a credit card.) The annual Red Envelope drive, Bainbridge’s largest philanthropy campaign on the island, runs through Dec. 31.

what they wished Owen’s legacy to be. “My husband Kelsey and I didn’t even have to think about it—the idea was so clear. We knew we wanted to build a place for the community where all kids were afforded the opportunity to play,” Marshall said.

By Erin Jennings Playgrounds are childhood staples. It’s where kids master the art of swinging, learn to take turns on the slide and play hide-and-seek in the nooks and crannies. But for children who aren’t able to navigate traditional playgrounds, they are often left to watch the play from the sidelines. This was a situation that the Marshall family knew too well. Owen Marshall had quadriplegia cerebral palsy and his condition made visiting playgrounds extremely difficult — especially if it was a family outing with his younger brother, Elliot. “Owen would either have to be carried while I followed and helped Elliot, or I’d have to lie him on a

There’s another set of plans posted in the lobby of the Bainbridge Aquatic Center. blanket while I watched his brother,” said mother Stacy Marshall. “Or most often, we’d leave Owen in the care of his grandparents and head to the playground without him. And that was heartbreaking. We were

missing an important piece of our family.” Owen passed away in 2013 and a few days after his death, a close friend of the Marshall family asked

The money from Owen’s memorial, coupled with a contribution from the Marshall family, got the playground ball rolling. Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District quickly got on board and helped the playground plant its roots at Rotary Park off Weaver Road. Word of Owen’s Playground spread and soon many community members became part of the fun.

Continued from page 10 can crawl, walk and roll under the colorful art. Classmates and friends of Owen as well as children across Bainbridge Island and Kitsap County, have donated allowance money to the cause. Playground experts (aka kids) have product-tested some of the equipment— which they gave two thumbs up. The playground will have traditional favorites but with a twist. The equipment has been modified so children have fewer barriers to play. The We-Saw is like a seesaw except it’s sturdier and uses bucket seats. The Expression Swing is a two-forone swing, where parent and child can swing together. And the Slide Mound allows kids to run or wheel up the mound to the slide’s entrance (no stairs!) and then ride down the slide. Owen’s Playground team members have thought of everything. For instance, the equipment will be built on smooth, poured-in-place rubberized surfaces because pea gravel and bark are too difficult to traverse. They’ve even created spaces for kids who need to retreat to quieter areas of the playground, yet who



still want to be part of the action. And for children who have difficulty regulating their body temperatures, there’s space to play under sail-like awnings. Sarah Brandt-Erichsen, a member of the development team for Owen’s Playground, believes 99 percent of the users of the playground won’t have access challenges. But for those who do, or for the mom who has multiple scoliosis and is wheelchair-bound, or the grandfather who is hearing impaired and needs clear sight-lines to help keep track of his grandchild, “This space allow families to recreate outdoors together,” she said. As for Owen, Marshall knows what he would have enjoyed most about the playground: the sound of laughter. “Because of his limited vision, hearing was Owen’s most important sense. He’d light up when he’d hear his peers playing,” Marshall said. “Anytime he was stimulated, he’d arch his body – it was his way of smiling.” Owen’s Playground is scheduled to be open for play in 2016. Funds raised through OCFA will help with

When it’s complete, Marshall envisions it becoming a popular place where the community gathers. “If you can afford populations to come together and eliminate barri-

ers, we can build compassion and empathy,” Marshall said. “If we can get all kids outside and having fun together, think how those relationships will affect the children as they go forward in life.”

THANK YOU! Your support provides exceptional outdoor learning experiences that inspire lifelong environmental and community stewardship.

Honoring the past and promoting the future By Erin Jennings Nestled in the woods off High School Road stands a tan building with a long history. If you drive by too quickly, you might miss it and the significance the Filipino American Community of Bainbridge Island & Vicinity has on the region. The local Fil-Am community is just as vibrant as it was back when it got its start during World War II and played an important role keeping the local agriculture industry afloat. “My dad, his uncles and his cousins migrated from the Philippines and eventually made it to Bainbridge Island,” said Gene Tabafunda, president of the Fil-Am com-

And when the Japanese returned, the Filipinos purchased their own land and began farming.” Tabafunda said that to help with harvesting, his family heard there were Native Americans who understood the hard work involved and that’s how the Filipinos struck-up relationships with Native Americans—hence the name Fil-Am. “Their idea was to raise enough children to help harvest the crops and continue with the farming,” Tabafunda said with a bit of a smile. “My family had 10 kids.” To provide a place to gather, the Fil-Am Community built the hall in the early 1940s. It was built as a place to hold functions and celebrations, and that’s a role it continues to fill today. Photo by Joel Sackett

Continued from page 12 “The Fil-Am Community really stressed the importance of culture and sticking together,” Tabafunda said. He recalls as a young boy listening to the elders speak their native language. Although he didn’t know what was being said, the conversations had a strong spirit of camaraderie. “Now there are only a few remaining pioneers and we are keeping the traditions and culture alive by teaching the next generations the values of respecting elders and learning where they’ve come from,” he said. Events such as The Strawberry Festival teaches the community about its roots while engaging up and coming younger members through the royal court. Children from ages 10 to 16 compete for titles such as King, Queen, Prince and Princess. The process teaches the children lifelong skills such as being well-spoken and how to interact with elders. “The process really brings the kids out of their shells,” Tabafunda said. Money raised through OCFA will

that enough,” Tabafunda said. “When members of the community drive by the hall and see cars in the parking lot, the young kids cry out to stop so they can join in on the fun. We teach them that they have a place here.”

Island residents and the nonprofits that serve the community. Rather than being solicited individually from all the local nonprofits, OCFA complies a comprehensive list and the residents decide which organizations they wish to support. There is a real diversity of non-profits on the Island. Some are big organizations that have full-time fundraising staff, but there are also smaller organizations that rely heavily on funds raised through OCFA. For some of the smaller nonprofits, if OCFA didn’t exist, the organization wouldn’t survive and needs in our community would go unmet.

By Erin Jennings In July 2015, Tracey Peacoe Denlinger took the reins of One Call for All as Executive Director and quickly immersed herself in all things RedEnvelope related. She took a short break to answer a few questions about the annual campaign and OCFA’s role in the community. Q: Can you give us a bit about your background and what interested you in working for OCFA? A: I’ve worked in nonprofit development and communications for the past twenty years, and I’ve served on many boards. I’ve lived on Bainbridge Island for 13 years and before moving here, spent a fair amount of time on the Island because my parents have

Go Run! helps keep girls on track

By Erin Jennings Life for preteen girls isn’t always easy: with one foot in childhood and the other heading toward the teen years, it can be easy to lose their footing.

Funds raised through OCFA go to help provide scholarships and to offset the expense of race registrations (the girls run either a 5K or 1-mile race at the end of the season).

But thanks to Go Run!, their feet learn the joy of running and all the benefits the sport provides. “Go Run! builds confidence,” said high school senior and mentor Mary Van Dyke. “At first the girls find running daunting, but after training and establishing friendships with other teammates, they’re soon running far distances.” Go Run! began in 2006 after three women were out for a run and discussed the role the sport has played in their lives. “We all agreed we would have loved to be on a team when we were younger. It’s much more fun to run in a group” said Anne Lindquist, one of the program’s founders. “Go Run! offers girls of all athletic abilities the opportunity to be part of a team while also setting individual goals.” Research conducted by Women’s Sports Foundation found that by age 14, girls drop out of sports at two times the rate of their male peers. With Go Run! it doesn’t matter if the girls are a natural or trying it out for the first time. The team motto holds true for all: Every girl is an athlete. “Some girls have never physically exerted themselves so hard,” said Laura Van Dyke, co-director, longtime runner and mother of teen mentor, Mary. “We teach them that it’s OK to sweat, to be out of breath and have tight muscles.”   Participants learn techniques such as how to properly stretch, how to move arms when running and helpful breathing patterns to avoid side stitches. There are life lessons on making healthy eating choices and a section on body image where it’s emphasized that everyone is different and that there are lots of versions of normal. An added benefit to the program is the camaraderie that is built between the

“Go Run! really builds self-confidence,” Lindquist said. “It’s very empowering to train for and finish a race. The girls learn that if they put effort into something, they are rewarded.”

Big-city doctors with Islandcentered care By Erin Jennings Caring for medical conditions from A to practically Z — allergy testing to X-rays to be exact — Virginia Mason Bainbridge Island Medical Center (VMBIMC) has stood watch over Winslow Way and the Bainbridge Island community for years. “Some of our patients were born in our building, back when it was The Winslow Clinic,” said Catherine Edwards, MD and section head for VMBIMC. “Many of our staff members have worked here for several decades. The longest has been part of the team for over 35 years.” With its sprawling building in the center of town, VMBIMC is a reliable fixture for the community. Many of you probably have its phone number memorized and know the check-in attendants by name. The staff at VMBIMC is integrated into the community as well, further strengthening the doctorpatient relationship. Your doctor might coach your daughter’s soccer team.

You see familiar VMBIMC faces in the grocery aisles and in the library stacks. “Our patients are our friends and neighbors, and we are strongly committed to ensuring all aspects of the health of our community,” Edwards said. “We are relentless in our efforts to find ways to better serve our patients.” These better ways include adding urgent care (opened in January 2015) and expanding office hours to better accommodate commuters and busy schedules. The list of specialists at VMBIMC has grown as well, making medical trips to Seattle unnecessary for Islanders. Instead, services like mammography and bone density screening can be done right in Win-

slow. Money donated to VMBIMC through OCFA goes directly to improving patient care. Past funds have been used to purchase a spirometer, which is a device used to measure the volume of air inspired and expired from the lungs. Thanks to OCFA, another recent purchase was a phlebotomy chair used to make blood draws more comfortable. “Our goal is to help improve health and wellness at every opportunity for each patient, their families and our community,” Edwards said. With the Island’s population hovering around 24,000 and with 38,000 patient visits in 2014, VMBIMC is making a great impact on the Island’s health and wellness.

Tickling the ivories How 88 keys unlocked the music By Erin Jennings There was a grand-sized hole in the community and Darden Burns knew just what to do. “There wasn’t a piano in a public space that was suitable for recitals and concerts,” Burns said. “The time had come to put a piano in Winslow.” Burns, who teaches piano and has an extensive musical background, founded Bainbridge Community Piano Association with the mission to purchase and maintain a high-quality grand piano for public use. “It’s one of the bummers about being a pianist,” Burns said. “You can’t throw your instrument in your car and take it with you.” BCPA was formed in 2002 and in three years, the nonprofit raised enough money to purchase a $30,000 Yamaha C6 grand piano. The top-notch piano is kept in the Waterfront Park Community Center where it can be rented with the venue for recitals and parties. The piano acquisition also sparked the inspiration for Burns’ next idea. “Once we got the piano, I knew I wanted to offer highlevel, high-caliber music to the public,” Burns said.

A montage of BCPA programs shows how much has already been done.

Continued from page 20 “We’ve really built a following and the audience is always attentive and appreciative,” Burns said. “At 4 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month, it’s all about the music.” BCPA doesn’t have the resources for big fundraising campaigns and instead relies on OCFA to help garner community support. Monies raised through the annual campaign are critical to BCPA’s

success: more than one-third of its operating budget comes from OCFA. The money pays for maintenance of the piano, insurance and to offset concert expenses. As for Burns, her payment comes in a different form. “My payoff is to sit back and listen to the piano be played by students and professionals,” Burns said. “It’s a pure joy to sit and listen to it.”

A: We are good at helping nonprofits raise money, and I would like to see us help them year-round. I plan to start a brown-bag lunch series where we convene on relevant topics like marketing, events, social media and development, so that we can all learn about best practices and build a professional community of support. Q: How do you describe OCFA to those who aren’t familiar with the organization? A: I think of OCFA like a matchmaker. We match the good intentions and charitable intent of donors with the good work that is happening on the Island. As a community, we are all served by a healthy nonprofit sector and we all benefit. At OCFA, we facilitate relationships between the nonprofits and the donors who want to make a difference on the Island.
