The Falmouth Fund of The Cape Cod Foundation is now accepting grant proposals from nonprofit organizations providing direct services to residents of Falmouth. The grant application is online at capecodfoundation.org; the application deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020. The Falmouth Fund is a resource that responds to diverse needs and opportunities across the community. The fund invests in activities that strengthen and enhance the community in the following areas: health and human services; education, youth and recreation; arts and culture; and the environment. In recognition of the unprecedented challenges and unanticipated opportunities created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the focus of The Falmouth Fund’s grant program for 2021 will be on priority needs with community-wide impact that will support the recovery and rebuilding process. Grants can address an organization’s response to the effects of the pandemic, including new programs or projects, ongoing activities, or operational support. Established in 2009, The Falmouth Fund has awarded more than $700,000 in grants to 80 nonprofit organizations serving the Falmouth community. To date in 2020, The Falmouth Fund awarded $100,000 in grants to 31 nonprofit organizations at its annual grant ceremony in March and an additional $42,500 in grants since then to five nonprofits that are addressing basic human needs for vulnerable populations that have been impacted by the pandemic.
