Our Island Club, a consumer discount membership program, announced the distribution of more than $43,000 in 2010 donations to Island nonprofits, charities, and scholarships.
Recipients included the Vineyard Nursing Association ($2,800 ), Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School’s vocational scholarships ($3,000), and the Permanent Endowment Fund of Martha’s Vineyard ($5,000).
The club also donated $1,500 to support the SafeRides program, $2,693 to Hospice and $2,063 to the animal shelter, according to a press release.
Club members pay an annual registration fee, 20 percent of which is donated to a charity of their choice. Scholarships are funded by members who do not designate a specific charity.
