The Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard invites online applications for its fall grant cycle, according to a press release.

“The Permanent Endowment is introducing a new application form this cycle,” Anne Williamson, chairman of the Permanent Endowment, said. “It’s shorter, simpler, and can be both completed and submitted online.
