Sag Harbor Partnership is a 501(c)3 designated not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the quality of life in Sag Harbor, NY.
The Sag Harbor Partnership is committed to preserving the natural, historic, and built environments of Sag Harbor; supporting its cultural life; and addressing social concerns. We are also committed to maintaining the unique character of our Main Street with its locally owned small businesses. Through community engagement and fundraising activities, we assist projects and organizations whose work furthers our stated purposes. By partnering with local government, the private sector, and concerned citizens, we strive to protect and enhance Sag Harbor for future generations.
The Sag Harbor Partnership is pleased to announce the appointment of Molly Bishop as the inaugural Executive Director for the organization. The Board of Directors, originally banded together as a group of volunteers with a shared love for the village and a desire to ensure its future integrity and prosperity, decided the time had come to make an investment in its own operations and expand the Partnership’s reach. With Bishop’s leadership the Sag Harbor Partnership will continue to serve the needs of our community and invest in the preservation and enhancement of the quality of life in Sag Harbor.
Ms. Bishop is an experienced development, outreach and strategy consultant whose previous work experience includes the Wellness Foundation, Southampton Arts Center and Bay Street Theatre as well as numerous local political campaigns. Molly is the thirteenth generation of her family to reside on Eastern Long Island. As such, she brings a strong love for and knowledge of our villages and our local population.
Ms. Bishop’s mandate is to propel the SHP from a successful volunteer collective into an effective non-profit organization. Says Bishop, “I am delighted to join the Sag Harbor Partnership as Executive Director and continue to build on the incredible leadership and commitment they have given to our community. As a proud and life-time resident of the East End, I am grateful for the dedication the SHP has shown in saving the Sag Harbor Cinema and continuing to selflessly give back to our community. This is an exciting next step for the partnership, and I can’t wait to see all we can accomplish together for the Village of Sag Harbor and our community as a whole.”
Says Gail Gallagher, the Sag Harbor Partnership President, “The Sag Harbor Partnership has always sought to partner with our Village in meeting its greatest needs; from addressing food insecurity and helping children and families during COVID, to taking up the challenge of bringing our Cinema back to Main Street. We’ve partnered with Stony Brook to study the quality of our surrounding waters and the SANS neighborhood for a study which resulted in receiving historic designation. The Partnership Board is an incredible team with a deep love of Sag Harbor. We look forward to Molly’s leadership and all that we will be able to accomplish in partnership with our great community.”
Other programs that the SHP has supported include: bike racks on Main Street, the Wear A Mask Project banners launched this summer, the free Sag Harbor Partnership walking tours and app, the plans for the new John Steinbeck Memorial Park, and traffic calming in the village.
Sag Harbor Partnership Board Members include: April Gornik, Emma Walton Hamilton, Diana Howard, Susan Lacy, Hilary Mills Loomis, Susan Mead, Carol Ostrow, Renee V.H. Simons, Susan Sprott and Jayne Young. For more information, please visit our website at: sagharborpartnership.org.
