Cape Cod 5 Announces Martha’s Vineyard Grants


Orleans – Cape Cod 5 recently presented two $25,000 grants, one to the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, the other to Martha’s Vineyard Community Services.

The grants, which will be distributed over the next to three years, will contribute to the museum’s capital campaign and supports the establishment of its new campus on 151 Lagoon Pond Road in Vineyard Haven.

MV Community Services will use the funds to bolster its capital campaign and use some of it to further the construction of an early childhood center and increase its endowment. 

“Cape Cod 5 is pleased to support the Martha’s Vineyard Museum and its objective to strengthen and preserve the connection to the Island and its diverse heritage,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, President and CEO of Cape Cod 5.

“We are inspired by their work, which so effectively captures the vibrancy of the communities on Martha’s Vineyard.”

“Cape Cod 5 is honored to support Martha’s Vineyard Community Services in their mission to provide Island residents with the social, emotional and financial amenities that are essential to their health and wellbeing,” she said.

The Martha’s Vineyard Museum, founded in 1922, purchased the former 1895 Marine Hospital in Vineyard Haven in 2011. Funds from the capital campaign contributed to the renovation of the historical structure into the museum’s new campus, which opened earlier this month.

Founded in 1961 by a group of Island clergy men and family physicians, Martha’s Vineyard Community Services maintains an objective to meet the needs of Island individuals, families and communities through programs that provide access to education, health and human services.
