Testimonials

“As the principal of the the nominating committee for the Book Festival  I found this year’s Nantucket Nonprofit Leadership conference incredibly helpful and inspiring. We are now seeking new candidates and officers for the committee and found myself quoting one of the presenters, Ms. Fridman. She said “think about where your organization WANTS TO GO when you are looking for new board members”.  This quote and other lessons learned from the conference started a productive conversation at our last meeting.”

“Receiving the William H. Brown Scholarship gave me a new appreciation for the Nantucket community and the support it has always given me-my scholarship is one of the many ways the island has helped me pursue my goals in different areas”

“The summer 2020 adventure pods were more than we could have asked for. The kids were so happy to see each other, and our parents not only appreciated the respite but were so happy to see their kiddos having fun and engaged. Thank you to the Nantucket Fund for making this happen.”
