Falmouth Matters. This year. Every Year.
A town is not just a place. It’s a community. Everyone is connected. Together, the people who live there share something special. That’s why a group of residents established The Falmouth Fund in 2009. They wanted to support nonprofit organizations that were doing remarkable things in the community. They wanted to help make a difference in people’s lives. And they certainly have.
Over the past ten years, The Falmouth Fund has awarded nearly $500,000 in grants to more than 70 organizations. It has helped power up food pantries, shelters, health centers, and mentoring programs. It has helped bring equipment, resources, and opportunities to seniors, women in transition, and those with disabilities. It has helped build playgrounds, send kids to camp, and fund busses for field trips. It has helped preserve historical buildings and precious open spaces. It has supported talks, concerts, film festivals, and new theatrical works. Because of the generosity of the community, The Falmouth Fund has done so much. With continued support, it can do so much more.
THE NEXT DECADE: MEETING THE CHALLENGES, SEIZING OPPORTUNITIES
Over the next decade, we will focus on building The Falmouth Fund’s endowment. By growing the endowment, we will continue to provide significant financial assistance to the nonprofit community every year while planning for the future. We know that the needs and opportunities in Falmouth will change over time. We also know that we will need additional resources to meet these challenges and to seize opportunities that enrich our community – now and in the future. Our work is ongoing. You can help.
IN APPRECIATION: CELEBRATING EARLY SUCCESS
In support of our goal to build the endowment over the next ten years, the Willett Foundation Fund provided a $50,000 matching challenge gift in 2018. With the generous support of community members, the challenge was successfully completed and will add $100,000 to The Falmouth Fund’s permanent endowment. PRESS RELEASE
