    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.

    Join us to welcome Jackie Friedman, Psy.D as MVNC's new Executive Director.

    The Martha’s Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative Board of Directors is pleased to announce the hiring of Jackie Friedman, Psy.D., of Edgartown, as its new Executive Director.  Jackie takes the place of long-time Executive Director Peter Temple, who retired in December.  She will begin work with us in March.

    Jackie brings a wealth of experience and know-how to the job.  In her prior roles in hospital, government, nonprofit and private sector behavioral and mental health program work, Jackie has developed impressive strengths in strategic and project management, keen creative problem-solving ability, and compassion and sensitivity in working with others.  Her many roles have benefited from her skills in working collaboratively across many organizations.  As one of her references noted, “Jackie has a unique set of skills in both getting things done well and doing them in ways that build trust across work units she did not often have responsibility for. Uncommon in today’s complex and fast-moving world”

    We feel extremely fortunate to have found someone of her ability to lead us in our continued work to help strengthen the island’s nonprofit community.

    Jackie is married and is raising two young children on the Vineyard.  She currently serves as Chair of the Vineyard Montessori School Board of Directors and sits on the Family Center Advisory Committee in Vineyard Haven.  We feel sure that Jackie’s commitment to the Martha’s Vineyard community and to the long-term development of our nonprofit community will serve both our organization and the island well in the years to come.

    We ask that the Vineyard community join us in welcoming Jackie as Executive Director of the Martha’s Vineyard Nonprofit Collaborative and in offering her its unreserved support in her new role.

    Read more about Jackie's background in our recent Letter to the Editor.
