Cape Cod 5 has made a $50,000 donation to the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative in honor of Dorothy A. Savarese’s 17 years as Cape Cod 5 CEO and her dedication to environmental stewardship.

“With the full support of the Board, Cape Cod 5 is proud to recognize Dorothy’s tenure as CEO and her lasting impact on the bank, our customers and our communities with this donation to the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative, an organization close to her heart,” said Matt Burke, Chief Executive Officer at Cape Cod 5. “Dorothy has dedicated herself to working collaboratively with community members across the region to find real solutions to combat climate change. She led the bank’s efforts to establish environmental stewardship as a top priority, which we have built into our own practices as a responsible business, and has advanced our ability to support the green efforts of our customers, communities and employees.”

Savarese has been an active member of the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative for several years and, earlier this year, was named president of its board of directors. In her role, she continues to call upon her experience with local climate action to help lead the Collaborative in mitigating and adapting to the climate crisis and helping the region avoid its potentially devastating impacts.

“We are thrilled, honored, and enormously grateful to Cape Cod 5 for its extraordinary gift to the Climate Collaborative in recognition of Dorothy’s many years of outstanding leadership at Cape Cod 5,” said Rich Delaney, Climate Collaborative Executive Director. “She and the bank have been in the business vanguard in addressing the climate crisis with major net zero, climate emergency and environmental justice initiatives. We are fortunate to have Dorothy at the helm of our board of directors and helping lead the charge to combat the climate crisis.”
