Community Hero Spotlight: Jill Karp

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.


Jill Karp - 2017 Hometown HeroMEET JILL KARP

February 2017 Community Hero

Jill Karp
has the heart of a year-round Nantucket resident. Jill serves on several boards, on and off the island, including Nantucket Cottage Hospital Boston Pops, the Nantucket Film Festival, the Nantucket Comedy Festival, the Nantucket Book Festival and Boston Children’s Hospital. She also serves on the advisory board of the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket. She is one of the founding members of the Nantucket Project and is responsible for the Nantucket Islander Card. Jill donates her time and talents selflessly and makes it her business to give back.

Jill will be sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to Family and Children Services of Nantucket.

Thank you, Jill, for all you’ve done and continue to do for the Nantucket Community.
