Thanks to the collaboration of Associated Grant Makers of Massachusetts (AGM), The Oak Bluffs Public Library, and the Martha’s Vineyard Donor Collaborative, and a grant from the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, Island non-profit grant seekers will no longer have to travel to Boston for grant research.

Grant Resource Network: Martha’s Vineyard (GRN: MV) will duplicate the resources and expertise available at AGM’s center in Boston, including their research database of 400 local funders, and bring much needed grant seeking support to the Vineyard. Housed at the Oak Bluffs Public Library and available free to the public, Grant Resource Network: Martha’s Vineyard will also be a Foundation Center Cooperating Collection so the full resources of that national organization, including their research database of 97,000 grant makers, will also be available to Vineyarders.

Visit the Resources web page to see a partial list of print materials and databases. The GRN: MV resources may be used during the library’s open hours. Please speak to a library staff member to learn how to access the Foundation Center & AGM databases.

More than 15 people with grant writing and research experience have been trained and are available by appointment to assist those using Network resources. To make an appointment for someone to help you use the center, contact Peter Temple at 508-645-3690 or send an E-mail to
