In keeping with the agency’s community-minded spirit, MV Community Services donates 20% of annual net proceeds to other Island non-profits that benefit youth and seniors.

The MV License Plate Program supports both MV Community Services and other Island charities through the Driving the Future Fund, a collaborative effort between MV Community Services and the Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard. Grants from this fund are used to support education and health and human services for youth and seniors on Martha’s Vineyard. Driving the Future Fund grant recipients to date include:

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape and the Islands
  • Island Elderly Housing
