Community Hero Spotlight: Margaretta Andrews

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.




July 2017 Community Hero

Margaretta Andrews wakes up every morning and says, “What can I do to make our community better?” Her determination to ensure the island’s nonprofits reach their highest potential is evident in all that she has accomplished as executive director of the Community Foundation for Nantucket over the last eight years. Margaretta puts the needs of Nantucket residents first and is an unsung hero working behind the scenes to make life better for everyone on Nantucket.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Margaretta will be sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to the The Community Foundation’s Nantucket Fund.

Thank you, Margaretta, for all you for the well-being of those on the Island.
