  • Sunny Daily as the Community Foundation’s new Program Director

    The Community Foundation for Nantucket (CFN) is pleased to announce the hiring of Sunny Daily as the new Program Director.  Sunny will join the Foundation team in February and brings with her a wealth of Nantucket nonprofit experience and extensive connections to Nantucket’s vibrant and diverse year-round population.
    Prior to joining the Foundation, Sunny has been the Site Director for Health Imperative’s Island Clinic. In this role, Sunny revolutionized the organization’s impact on the year-round community. She not only increased the number of families accessing their services but built the organization’s capacity to receive competitive grant awards while increasing their community outreach.
    Sunny will be taking over for Jeanne Miller, who has served as the Foundation’s Program Director for the past eight years and will be retiring this spring. “I am thrilled that Sunny will be taking on the role of Program Director”, says Miller, “Having worked with Sunny in her role at Health Imperatives, I have seen her affect change at an organizational level and build partnerships within the nonprofit community to better the lives of all Nantucket residents. I am confident that Sunny will be an excellent addition to the Foundation’s team.”
    In the role of Program Director, Sunny will oversee the Foundation’s grantmaking programs, which includes management of the Nantucket Fund and ReMain Nantucket Fund. Sunny will also help with the management of the recent $1.85 Million grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This grant is funded through the federal CARES Act to prepare for, prevent and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and is specifically earmarked to address food insecurity. With Sunny’s help, CFN will distribute funds from this grant over the next two years to eligible nonprofits.
    “We are excited to have Sunny join the organization. She brings incredible energy and a desire to make a difference. I am confident that with her leadership, we will see lots of growth within our organization and new program opportunities for our Island’s nonprofit organizations. We are grateful for the systems which Jeanne built and are excited to see how Sunny is able to grow this position and continue to increase the Foundation’s impact on our Island community.” Margaretta Andrews, Executive Director, Community Foundation for Nantucket.
