- Acting as a catalyst to create nonprofit and Island wide collaborations that leverage their ability to sustain the Vineyard.
What We Do
The Martha's Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative (MVNC) is the only organization on the Island that seeks to strengthen its 100+ nonprofits, a community network that is vital to preserving and sustaining the Vineyard that we cherish MVNC does this by offering workshops, forums, and other programs on the principles of good governance, board development, leadership, collaboration, and fund raising. It also brings together the nonprofit community to tackle issues that affect the island at large. MVNC is composed of a small board that is self-funded. It seeks to sustain the Vineyard by connecting donors with nonprofits of particular interest and by strengthening nonprofits to assure donors that their money is well-spent.
