2018 President's Letter

   I am proud to say that, thanks to the broad-based support of our members, I believe the Farm Neck Foundation can now rightfully include itself on the list of important Island organizations that has made a meaningful difference for so many and helped preserve what is best about the Vineyard. This year, with your support, we were able to again assist numerous Island organizations in their diverse but equally important missions.

   As we pursue our mission to assist those in need, we continue to be introduced to an ever-growing list of volunteer organizations unselfishly dedicated to making the Vineyard a better place to live, work and recreate. There are few places where such a large percentage of the residents recognize what it is that makes a place unique and special and are willing to actively participate in its preservation before it is lost. It is an important part of what makes this such a special place. We ask everyone to please review our annual grant page and see how your contributions were put to work. Just as important, please let us know how you think our resources could best be utilized in the future.

   On behalf of the Foundation Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for not only your financial support, but for the many thoughtful words of encouragement and support for the objectives of our Foundation. We couldn't do it without you.

Timothy D. Sweet
