The Farm Neck Foundation has issued a call for applicants for the foundation’s 2016 grants. All Island nonprofit organizations whose goal is to improve the quality of life in the Martha’s Vineyard community are eligible.

Traditionally the grants do not fund salaries but give special consideration to innovative approaches to problems or needs that cannot get funding through traditional sources.

Organizations are invited to submit a concise proposal describing their specific project, its potential benefits, budgetary requirements and grant amount requested along with two letters of support from sources outside of the organization. Proposals must be received by Nov. 1, 2016, and may be sent to: Farm Neck Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 1656, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557, or by email to

The foundation is a charitable organization created in 1989 and funded by contributions from the membership and supporters of Farm Neck Golf Club.
