Grants Overview

Grants are the primary means by which the Community Foundation for Nantucket improves and enhances the Island. Proceeds for grants come from restricted and unrestricted endowments and donations from charitably-minded organizations and individuals. The Foundation provides its expertise and objectivity in determining the most beneficial use for funds available for grant making.

The Community Foundation administers three community grants via The Nantucket Fund, The ReMain Nantucket Fund, and the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Community Health Initiative Fund.
