This December, the Nantucket Fund was honored to support Fairwinds with a matching grant to support their Annual Appeal. The Nantucket Fund grant doubled every donation made to support behavioral health services up to $10,000.
Fairwinds, Nantucket’s Counseling Center, provides comprehensive licensed therapeutic support that fosters mental health through prevention, wellness education, and addiction recovery services.
The Nantucket Fund makes grants based on priorities determined through convening community members. Our Advisory Committee of health care workers, educators, clergy, police, town officials, the media and others, meet throughout the year to identify the Island’s most critical needs. Continuously, behavioral health jumps to the top of the list.
