2014 Community Grants Breakfast
December 5th was the 2014 Community Foundation Grants Breakfast.
As we celebrate our 8th Community Grants Cycle through the Nantucket Fund™, and the 5th Annual Grants Breakfast, we would like to honor all the donors who have had the confidence in the Community Foundation to support the Nantucket causes that are most significant each year. We are proud that we have been able to award nearly $360,000 to 45 individual nonprofits providing services to Nantucketers since 2007, and that we met our 2014 goal of doubling our grants to over $100,000.
Phil Stambaugh, President of the Foundation board, greeted over 100 people the Friday of Nantucket Stroll at the Nantucket Hotel to see where our grant dollars went this year.
