On April 1, 2020 we converted from a Trust to a non-profit corporation, Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard, Inc.

In December 2020, we changed our name to Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, Inc. to better reflect our expanding role in the community.

How we began

The Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard, now known as the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, was created in 1982 with an initial gift of $60,000 from the Estate of Ruth Bogan.  We have grown to assets under management of over $14 million dollars.
