Our Funds

The Cape Cod Foundation currently manages more than 300 individual funds.  Each one was created by an individual or group of people who wanted to support something that mattered to them. While no two are exactly alike, they all support nonprofit organizations, the heartbeat of our communities. Together, they power up arts & cultural experiences, scholarships and educational programs, environmental and conservation projects, health & human services, housing initiatives, and community and economic development throughout the Cape Cod region.  For good.
