The Foundation’s grantmaking process is one step in a cycle of philanthropy that exists to assist and complement the work of charitable organizations on Cape Cod and their ability to respond to the existing and emerging needs of our region. Since 1989, the Foundation has distributed more than $60 million back into the community.

All grant programs through The Cape Cod Foundation use our online application system. No paper copies will be accepted. Further information about our open discretionary grant programs is available under the Current Grants page.

All grant applicants are encouraged to review the Foundation’s grant guidelines and to contactCarrie Bearse, Program Officerat 508-790-3040 or cbearse@capecodfoundation.orgto discuss their project.
