Clarissa B. Porter Memorial Fund

Donate to the Clarissa B. Porter Memorial FundIn late December 2012, all of us at the Community Foundation were saddened by the news of the death of Clarissa Porter, one of our founders. Clarissa spent many summers on Nantucket after inheriting her family’s house on Quince Street, and worked tirelessly to support historic preservation of houses, including hers, on the island. The interior features of her house are protected in perpetuity by a preservation restriction she established through the Nantucket Preservation Trust.

At the behest of Bill Porter, the balance of Clarissa’s CFN Donor Advised Fund was transferred to the existing Rotary Fund, created to provide funding for ongoing maintenance and beautification of two of Nantucket’s most heavily traveled routes- the Milestone Road Rotary and the Sparks Avenue Roundabout – and the Fund was renamed in memory of Clarissa.
