The Hessel School House Corporation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that supports this
beloved historic landmark and the Avery Arts and Nature Learning Center, with both serving as
the centerpiece of the Les Cheneaux Islands community by sustaining its remarkable heritage,
stimulating the continued vitality of its residents, and preserving the incredible world of nature
that envelops the area.
Although our Board and strong core of volunteers continue to make every effort to sustain the
Hessel School House and Avery Learning Center through event rental income, seeking grants,
and annual fundraising, like most non-profits there is always a critical need for additional
funding for developing new programs and meaningful improvements.
Please know that any size gift is meaningful and will be appropriately utilized and recognized.
Our ongoing, engraved-brick campaign to fund the upgrading of the landscaping and
prospective gardens is one of the most meaningful and timeless ways to make a memorial gift.
The bricks are available in two sizes: $100 (4x8) $250 (8x8).
Also, a $1,000 gift may be recognized through a memorial plaque placed along the garden
walkway; and a memorial bench for $1500.
You can contribute by credit card via our secured online service or call the Hessel School
House at 906-484-1333; or mail a check to Hessel School House, P.O. Box 25, Hessel, MI 49745.
Your participation in supporting this wonderful endeavor is deeply appreciated.
