Cape Cod 5 announces $25,000 grant


Cape Cod 5 recently presented a $25,000 grant to the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. The grant, which will be distributed over the next three years, will contribute to the museum’s capital campaign and support the establishment of its new campus on 151 Lagoon Pond Rd. in Vineyard Haven.

“Cape Cod 5 is pleased to support the Martha’s Vineyard Museum and its objective to strengthen and preserve the connection to the Island and its diverse heritage,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, president and CEO of Cape Cod 5. “We are inspired by their work, which so effectively captures the vibrancy of the communities on Martha’s Vineyard.”

The Martha’s Vineyard Museum, founded in 1922, purchased the former 1895 Marine Hospital

in Vineyard Haven in 2011. Funds from the capital campaign contributed to the renovation of

the historical structure into the museum’s new campus, which opened earlier this year.
