About this funder:



This spring, the Community Foundation established the Nantucket Fund for Emergency Relief. This COVID-19 response fund has been actively awarding grants on a rolling basis to Nantucket nonprofits addressing the most important community needs during and after this public health crisis.

Since March, we have established the following phases for awarding Emergency Relief Grants: 

  • Phase I: Grants to critical human service organizations which were actively responding to the pandemic and to organizations which were forced to close, but needed support to open when allowed. 
  • Phase II: Grants to help nonprofit organizations which provide vital community services reopen to the public. This included funding disinfecting programs and PPE equipment.
  • Phase III: Grants to Island nonprofits impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, primary focus will be given to Island organizations which focus their attention on the Island’s most critical needs and initiatives. (October).

Phase III Requests: Applications Due October 13, 2020 

Phase III: Operational requests related to loses or shortfalls due to COVID-19
