Advisory Committee

Advisory Committee members reflect a diverse representation of the Nantucket community, both year-round and seasonal. Members of the Committee are elected annually by the Board. The Advisory Committee convenes annually to discuss the needs of the community and to make recommendations to the Board on ways to address those needs. Advisory Committee members are updated on grant-making and other activities of the Foundation so that they are able to help the general public develop an awareness of and involvement in the policies, purposes, objectives, and operations of the Foundation.
