Savings Bank Grants

This month the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank Charitable Fund joined the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank to award $13,000 in grants to eight local nonprofit organizations and community groups. The grants will help fund programs in the arts, education, health care, veterans affairs and youth.

Spring grant recipients include Hospice of Martha’s Vineyard, Martha’s Vineyard American Legion Post #186, the Martha’s Vineyard Cancer Support Group, the Martha’s Vineyard Cerebral Palsy Camp, Polly Hill Arboretum, Sail Martha’s Vineyard, the Vineyard Playhouse and The Yard.

Since 2006, the charitable fund has been a part of the Permanent Endowment Fund, the Island’s community foundation. Grant requests are reviewed quarterly.
