    The Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard has launched the Emergency Response Fund in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to address urgent needs that face Islanders and their families.  The Emergency Fund seeks to shore up the invaluable role of Island non-profits when crisis hits, whether it’s today’s public health emergency or future crisis facing the Vineyard from natural disasters to financial.  The fund is immediately established with $25,000 from existing sources with the hope and expectation that donors will build upon that modest base.
