The Edey Foundation  has announced funds available for grants to Island nonprofit conservation organizations.

Established by the late Maitland Edey, the foundation provides money for conservation and environmental programs on Martha’s Vineyard. Proposals related to ongoing conservation, energy, education and scientific studies are welcome. The foundation does not fund construction or building projects.

In 2020 the foundation gave approximately $80,000 to Island nonprofits for activities including education programs for the public and for school children, conservation advocacy, research and water bird protection.

Proposals are due Jan. 15 for funding in March. For copies of the proposal guidelines, contact Beatrice Phear at
