Cape Cod Foundation Awards $248,100 To Nonprofits To Support Capacity Building Initiatives

The Cape Cod Foundation recently awarded a total of $248,100 in grants to 11 local nonprofits to support capacity building initiatives.  

The recipients from the second year of the Foundation’s Targeted Capacity Building Grant Program are: Amazing Grace of Cape Cod, Amplify POC Cape Cod, Belonging to Each Other, Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra, Community Connections, Health Imperatives, Health Ministry, Helping Our Women, Hyannis Public Library, Lower Cape Cod Community Access Television and Sharing Kindness.

“While we still use discretionary resources to support nonprofit programs, we prioritize projects that will help organizations reach the next level of operational, programmatic, financial, or organizational maturity,” said Kristin O’Malley, president and CEO of The Cape Cod Foundation.  “Our goal is to help nonprofits grow, increase sustainability, and expand impact.”

O’Malley said these grants will support staff and volunteer training and expansion, technology upgrades, and initiatives that increase access to services and create new revenue streams.

“Our Targeted Capacity Building Grant Program also includes a Cohort component,” added O’Malley.  “Grant recipients become part of a peer learning network to promote relationships, collaboration, and knowledge sharing among organizations and to build a greater community of support.”
