The Vineyard Fund for Board Development and Education is intended to support non-profit or municipal organizations in undertaking important capacity-building work they otherwise would not be able to afford.

These types of projects could be board development consulting, longer-term board member training, and other board-related educational experiences. Interested non-profit or municipal organizations may apply at any time of the year. Alternatively, organizations may also be nominated for this opportunity, either openly or anonymously, by contacting the Community Foundation staff.

Started in 2016, this fund is a collaborative effort between the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation, the Martha’s Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative, and the Tower Family Foundation.
