Our Island Club, the consumer savings program that also raises money for local organizations, has distributed its annual donations, more than $43,000.
Included in the distribution are scholarships to the Vineyard Nursing Association, Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School vocational programs and the Permanent Endowment Fund. It also donated $1,500 to support the SafeRides program. A complete list of the 180+ organizations is posted on the Web site ourislandclub.com.
When club members join or renew, 20 per cent of their membership is donated to the charity of their choice. Scholarships are funded by members who do not designate a specific charity.
Now in its fifth year, the club has distributed more than $160,000 to local organizations. It provides savings to more than 4,300 qualified year-round residents at more than 180 local businesses.
