Our Mission

The Cape Cod Foundation: Building Resources, Granting Opportunities
The Cape Cod Foundation is a community foundation. It exists for one single reason: to strengthen and enrich our community. We do this by building resources and then investing those resources back into the community.  Where they belong. Where they’ll do the most good. For now.  For the future. 

We do this in two ways:
We help other people create charitable funds that, when pooled and invested wisely, generate revenue for scholarships to local students and grants to nonprofit organizations. 

Just like our donors, we build, invest, and use our discretionary funds to bring additional resources to the community: more scholarships and grants, plus a variety of other initiatives with broad regional impact. 

The Foundation was established in 1989 with a single $10,000 scholarship fund.  Today, we manage over 300 funds.  Our assets now exceed $65 million; since inception, we have distributed more than $80 million back into the community. Over the past three decades, we have become deeply entrenched in the community and the nonprofit sector. We know where the needs and the challenges are. We also know how to build partnerships and leverage resources to meet them. 

There are more than 850 community foundations in the United States.  This is your community foundation.  What matters to you matters to us, too.  Let’s make a difference. Together.


Create your own fund. Donate to an existing fund. Support the Foundation’s Civic Leadership Initiatives.

Together, we have invested more than $90 million in grants and scholarships in the Cape Cod Community. For good.
