CFN Strategic Plan Goal #1: Growing Nantucket’s Endowment Develop and maintain funds to serve as a permanent legacy for charitable giving on Nantucket. Ensure that the Nantucket Fund will financially support and focus attention on the Island’s most critical needs and initiatives.

Goal 2: Convening our Community #

Serve as an information and education resource on community needs. Convene community members to identify key community needs, causes, and solutions.

Together, we can make a difference. Each year the Community Foundation for Nantucket has made incredible progress by working in partnership with Nantucket stakeholders. We face many of the same challenges here on Nantucket as the rest of our communities do nation-wide. Together, we have the power to create life changing opportunities and find solutions to current problems. By leveraging the talents and resources of all sectors – public, private and philanthropic – we can make an impact with a level of effectiveness that none of us could achieve on our own. By uniting the passion and commitment of donors, community members and nonprofits, we can create sustainable solutions that will continue to change lives for years to come. In this report, you will see how we are making progress on our own Strategic Plan. We are working to become the very best partner we can be for the community of Nantucket. You will also see how the Community Foundation for Nantucket and our partners are taking on the Island’s most pressing challenges. I invite you to learn more about our work, our partners, our stewardship of charitable funds and our legacy fund, the Nantucket Fund. Join us in making an impact and preserving our wonderful community together for the years ahead.

With our gratitude,

Goal #3: Strengthening our Foundation Develop best in class organizational leadership and recruit staff and trustees who bring new perspectives, skills, and strengths to our organization.

our keynote speaker. Dan is the founder and President of the Charity Defense Council, dedicated to transforming the way the public evaluates charities.

Dan’s Uncharitable talk, based on his book “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential”, has inspired audiences around the world and we are very excited to have him join us in the Fall.




In 2016, Addiction Solutions of Nantucket created a charitable fund with the Community Foundation while they charted the course of becoming an independent 501c3, to provide medication assisted treatment and counseling to aid in substance abuse recovery. Last year, the Rotary Club of Nantucket identified Addiction Solutions as their major charitable project, and raised over $168,000 through their own CFN Fund. Both funds were retired in early 2018, awarding over $240,000 to Nantucket’s newest charitable nonprofit.

Nancy Chase’s story is a familiar one. A generational Nantucketer, Nancy owned several properties on Nantucket which had increased in value over time.

Nancy sold one of these properties in 2008, and created a Charitable Remainder Trust which held the proceeds from that sale. This accomplished several things:

In Memory of

Nancy avoided any capital gains on the sale, which would have been significant;

Richard H. Oman

She received income from her trust to support her during her lifetime; and She supported several Nantucket charities with the funds from her trust upon her death.

This past June, we were saddened by the loss of Dick Oman, a member of the Community Foundation’s founding group. Beyond his family, Dick's life passions were philanthropy and a commitment to community, as evidenced by a life of service. Dick served as Secretary, Director, and Counsel to the Columbus Foundation from 1955-to-1977 and as legal advisor for many years following. His insight during our early years proved invaluable, and we are so thankful we had Dick’s counsel and support as our organization grew.

The Community Foundation is honored to be one of those charitable recipients through the Nantucket Fund™ — Nancy left a significant legacy to the Island and We Thank Her!

Strengthening our Foundation

From the Executive Director I am so proud of how the Community Foundation has made a difference on Nantucket this year, thanks to you! Thank you to our donors who believe in our mission. Thank you to our Trustees who support our efforts every day to provide help to Nantucket where it is needed most. Thank you to the amazing women I work with who love what they do, coming to work every day with a smile on their faces. I could not be more grateful, and look forward to another

Our Trustees

wonderful year fulfilling our mission to strengthen our Island community.

– Margaretta Andrews

In 2017, we said goodbye to four Trustees: Bill Frist, Marsha Kotalac, Sue Ottison, and Geoff Smith. We are so grateful for their many years of service and support of the Foundation. We also welcomed two new Trustees (below) as part of our mission to recruit active and insightful community leaders to our Board.

Staff Update In 2017 we welcomed two new staff members to our team. Kristin Campbell (top) joined us as our Office Manager and Carlisle Jensen (bottom) as our Development and Program Coordinator. Krissy and Carlisle are active Nantucketers and like Margaretta and Jeanne, are deeply entrenched in our Island’s year round community. Next time you are on-Island, make sure to stop by our office to say hi.

Maureen Bousa

Neil Marttila

Maureen joined us as a Trustee in August of 2017. She lives in Wellesley Hills, MA and has enjoyed a summer cottage on Nantucket since 2003. Maureen has a wealth of nonprofit board experience, and has been an invaluable addition to our board and development committee. Maureen and her husband Edward are the parents of Marina, Eamon, Bridget, and Monica.

Neil jumped head first into his role with CFN. He joined our board in early 2017 and become our treasurer in August that same year. Neil is the Senior Vice President and Market Executive at Nantucket Bank, a division of Blue Hills Bank and serves as a board member of many local organizations. Neil has lived on Nantucket since 1991 and is married to Lauren Marttila.
