Do you know about THE FRIENDS OF ESILL?

As a non-profit organization, ESILL seeks to extend its community support through our membership program, The Friends of ESILL. The organization is made up of a group of interested persons who believe in ESILL's mission and are willing to contribute a modest annual membership fee to sustain "The School for the Fun of It” and our educational goals.

Past achievements in our outreach efforts include sizable donations for the building of the Fairhope Public Library and the Fairhope Museum of History. ESILL has also donated funds to support the Eastern Shore Literacy Council, the Eastern Shore Arts Center, the Daphne Art Center, the Friends of the Fairhope Library’s Raise a Reader program and the summer reading programs at the Fairhope, Daphne and Foley libraries.  We are proud to have sponsored the production of a free, 14-part lecture series, “500 Years of Baldwin County History”, which was filmed and later distributed to local schools and libraries as an ongoing educational resource.

The Friends of ESILL also helps us keep tuition low and affords members fellowship with our directors, students and instructors. For an annual membership fee of $35, you will enjoy course flyers mailed to your home and invitations to receptions featuring guest lecturers where you may share your ideas with board members and instructors. To show our appreciation for your support, we provide a $5 discount on any courses you and your immediate family members take for the next two terms. Join the Friends of ESILL and give your backing to one of Fairhope’s unique institutions. To get on the ESILL team, click on the link below or call Diana Gardiner at 251-210-4482 or email her at
