The Chatham Fund of The Cape Cod Foundation Awards $30,000 in Grants to Ten Nonprofit Organizations
The Chatham Fund of The Cape Cod Foundation recently awarded $30,000 in grants to ten nonprofit organizations serving the town’s residents.
“This year’s grant recipients are helping residents facing extreme financial hardships, providing critical services for those with Alzheimer’s disease, and creating job training opportunities for people with disabilities,” said Henry R. Holden, Chair of The Chatham Fund’s Advisory Committee. “They’re also bringing wonderful arts experiences and educational programs for children into our community.”
Holden was among a group of residents who established The Chatham Fund with the Foundation in 2013 to build a permanent endowment for the town through private donations and to provide grants to nonprofit organizations that enhance the quality of life in the community.
“Since then, with the continued generosity of our donors and the investment and grantmaking expertise of The Cape Cod Foundation, we have been able to invest $152,845 in nonprofit organizations that are doing extremely important work in our community,” Holden said.
Three other Cape towns have established similar funds with the Foundation: Falmouth, Sandwich and Harwich.
“The Town Fund model is a powerful one,” said Kristin O’Malley, President and CEO of The Cape Cod Foundation. “When people share a vision for their community and work together to support it, they are able to make a greater impact every year and build resources for the years to come.”
The Chatham Fund generously support PBCB’s First Sail program and Marine Education programs for Chatham families and children.
We are so grateful to The Chatham Fund and The Cape Cod Foundation for their support of our work.
