Farm Neck Foundation Grants
How to Apply for a Grant
The Farm Neck Foundation issues a call for applicants for the Foundation's grants annually each September. Eligible are all Island non-profit organizations whose goal is to improve the quality of life in the Martha's Vineyard community, with a preference toward those organizations with 501(c)3 status.
Each year the Foundation's Board of Directors requests submittals from all Vineyard non-profit organizations in need of help to fund their unique projects or programs. Traditionally, the Board does not fund salaries but gives special consideration to innovative approaches to problems or needs that cannot get funding through traditional sources. The Board does not award grants two years in a row to the same organization.
Island non-profit organizations are invited to submit a concise proposal describing their specific project, its potential benefits, budgetary requirements, grant amount requested, and two (2) letters of support from sources outside of the organization. Proposals must be received by November 1st and may be sent to:
Farm Neck Foundation
