The Nantucket Garden Club provides grants to foster local interest in gardening, horticulture and landscape design and to improve the quality of the environment through land conservation and ecological initiatives.
Each year the Nantucket Garden Club selects projects to fund that are in line with the Club’s mission and purpose. The purposes of the Nantucket Garden Club shall be (a) to promote better knowledge and love of gardening, plants and flowers, and all branches of horticulture; to conserve birds, wildflowers, native plants and trees, and the ecological well-being of Nantucket Island, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Nation, through direct contribution to civic, charitable and governmental institutions and funds that qualify as tax exempt: and (c) to raise and expend money for public benefit contributing to the beauty of the island.
The Club’s Grant Program responds to funding requests from community groups and organizations that fit the above criteria. These requests can be for ongoing programs or seed money for new projects.
