Save Ellis Island is a thriving robust organization that was founded in 1999.

As the sole partner of the National Park Service for the restoration and preservation of the abandoned Ellis Island hospitals, our mission is to raise the funds needed to reopen these twenty-nine historic buildings for the public’s education and enjoyment.

Come join with us in our exciting ongoing adventure to accomplish our mission. We have several paid and volunteer positions available NOW. Free Ferry transportation from New York City or Jersey City, NJ will be provided.
