The Heart of the Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard is home to more than 100 nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to the arts, community services, health services, conservation efforts, education, housing and recreation. Many organizations depend on volunteers and community support to make the Island a better place to live. The Island Nonprofit Directory, updated for 2018, is a community resource for anyone interested in more information about these organizations or in volunteering or supporting the programming of these nonprofits.

Efforts have been made to make the directory comprehensive, but any omissions or corrections should be directed to thevine@mvgazette.com.
