Founded in 1982, The Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard is the Island’s community foundation dedicated to enhancing and preserving the quality of life on Martha’s Vineyard forever. The Endowment’s purpose is to put philanthropic contributions to work for the people of Martha’s Vineyard by making grants that address community priorities, funding scholarships for Island students, and building a significant endowment that will serve as a resource for the Island in perpetuity.
Since 1982, The Endowment has grown from $60,000 to over $11 million in philanthropic assets under management. The Endowment has provided over $2 million in grant funding to 196 island nonprofit organizations and awarded over $2.25 million in academic scholarships to both Vineyard-based high school seniors and currently enrolled Island college students engaged in academic programs across the country.
The Endowment works closely with donors who care about Martha’s Vineyard on a variety of customized gift opportunities, donor advised and donor designated funds, bequests, and specific field of interest or portfolio funds, all having lasting impact on this extraordinary community.
Thank you again for giving to the Vineyard community through The Endowment.
Together we are building a better Island.
