Martha’s Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation announced today that Martha’s Vineyard Film Society (Martha’s Vineyard Film Center) and Friends of Nobska Light, are the recipients of the first-ever Community Impact Grants. Each non-profit selected will receive a $2,500 grant.
The recipients were selected from 30 nominations of 501c3 non-profits on Martha’s Vineyard and in Falmouth. Nominations included a short essay about the extraordinary impact the non-profits have made on our community over the past year.
Nominations were accepted from the community through February 14th, followed by the voting period from Feb. 18 through April 1. During the voting period, community-members cast over 2,000 votes.
“This recognition of our community’s outstanding non-profits doing amazing work to support our community couldn’t come at a better time,” said James M. Anthony, president and CEO of Martha’s Vineyard Bank. “Each nomination and vote is an expression of our community’s gratitude for our non-profits.
