New Name, Same Organization



Admit it, just like us, you couldn’t tell Serve Sag Harbor apart from Save Sag Harbor. Well, the group, which has become a fundraising vehicle for the kinds of civic projects Save Sag Harbor has typically encouraged, announced this week that it was changing its name to the more user friendly Sag Harbor Partnership.

The organization is registered as a 501(c)3, not-for-profit with the Internal Revenue Service and dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the quality of life in Sag Harbor, according to its website.

Among the group’s initiatives has been fundraising to install a series of traffic calming measures on village streets. Just last week, it was cited as being a possible source of funding for an effort to develop Sag Harbor Cove Park on the southwest side of the Lance Cpl. Jordan Haerter Veterans Memorial Bridge.

“The activities and programs of our organization include education, historic preservation of the built environment, preservation of the natural environment, and related social and economic concerns, such as affordable housing and support for locally-owned small businesses,” the group says on its website. “With monies raised through our fundraising activities, we will offer grants to support projects and other organizations engaged in work that furthers our stated purposes, including professional assistance.”

Contributions can be mailed to Sag Harbor Partnership, P.O. Box 182, Sag Harbor NY 11963. More information can be found at or by sending an email to
