Community Hero Spotlight: Michael Molinar

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.


Michael Molinar


August 2017 Community Hero

Michael Molinar’s contributions toward making Nantucket a better (and more beautiful) place are too numerous to mention!  Michael served on the board of the Nantucket Cottage Hospital, then on their Foundation, and even chaired the Nantucket Boston Pops event for three consecutive years, raising millions of dollars for the hospital.  Michael also served on the board of the Nantucket AIDS Network and actively donates his talent and time to the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Michael will be sending his $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Capital Campaign.

Thank you, Michael, for your tireless commitment to bettering every day life on the Island.
