We have turned our immediate focus to the expansion of our grant-growing capacity through the Nantucket Fund™, and recently launched a successful outreach to increase our grant making for 2015. Housing, mental health and substance abuse, affordable child care, year-round public transportation and diversity initiatives were the priorities identified by community leadership in 2014, and we were strategic in our awards around these priorities.
Our goal in the next 10 years is to become the community resource we know we can be, and what the Island deserves. Our grant making will increase to levels that will make an even bigger difference in the quality of life here on Nantucket. The charitable funds we administer will continue to support many Island projects and partnerships, today and well into the future.
As we celebrate community foundations this week, we urge you to learn a little more about your Island’s Foundation, get involved, or make a gift to ensure its continued success and growth!
Thank you for all your support.
