As an NGO, SHTA cooperates closely with various NGO’s that work on making St. Maarten a better place for its residents and visitors. Some NGO’s that are always welcoming your visit and / or support: 

Dow’s Musical Foundation

The foundation of “Mighty Dow” Isidore York actively preserves the St. Maarten steel pan culture. See if you can visit one of his concerts! York and his orchestra featured the SHTA 2021 Events Calendar as an important cultural icon. When on island with Christmas, do not miss out on his spectacular Christmas concert. 

Nature Foundation

The Nature Foundation defends St. Maarten’s beautiful fauna. Visit one of their events to get to know them! 

Les Fruits de Mer

In a beautiful old plantation house between Orient Bay and French Quarter / Quartier d’Orleans, one finds the Amuseum Naturalis, ran by the Fruits de Mer foundation. Volunteers have created a great collection of nature photos, historical insights and other collections worth visiting. See here for our online exhibition of the nature photography of one of its board members, Mark Yokoyama. 

K1 Britannia

K1 Brittannia assists with social programs to aid those St. Maarteners who need some extra support. See here for their annual events

The Heritage Museum 

On the eastern tip of Philipsburg , not far from the cruise port one finds the St. Maarten heritage museum. Cannons of the HMS Proselyte, a wreck that can still be dived to, welcome you to a compact and informative museum, learning about St. Maarten nature, people, history & monuments.
