The Permanent Endowment Fund for Martha’s Vineyard (The Endowment) is dedicated to improving the quality of life across the Island. Since its founding as a public charity in 1982, The Endowment has channeled financial resources to Island causes, nonprofits and students, while building and prudently stewarding an endowment to serve as a source of funding for the Island’s future needs.
The Endowment’s volunteer board of eleven local civic leaders knows the Vineyard’s people and the nonprofit organizations that serve them. The Endowment brings people and resources together to better the quality of life on the Vineyard.
As the Island’s community foundation, The Endowment promotes responsible and effective philanthropy.
