The Falmouth Fund
Your Community Fund. 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.
Since then, The Falmouth Fund has awarded more than $800,000 in grants to almost 90 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.
