Grants to improve community life in Massachusetts. The mission of the Foundation is to improve the quality of life for people in Cape Cod. The purpose of the available funding is to strengthen and expand the capacity of local organizations. Through this RFP, non-profit organizations and agencies can apply for one of two grant types: General Grants and Strategic Focus Grants.

General Grants will support:
• Existing programs with a proven track record of success that strengthen or enhance the program
• Pilot projects and idea testing
• Program planning and development
• Organizational development, technical assistance, and capacity building (e.g. board/staff retreats, strategic planning projects)

• Initial staff expansion for organizational growth (e.g. start-up staffing for a new program, etc.) with a clear plan for sustainability of position after funding ends
• Collaborative projects to address complex, regional needs (e.g. projects that engage multiple organizations, public policy initiatives, etc.)
• Expansion (e.g. geographic) or enhancement of existing programs with a proven track record of success; we are particularly interested in supporting plans or potential strategies to increase sustainability or self-sufficiency of existing programs (e.g. through diversification of revenue sources)
• Programs that have potential to be replicated or duplicated
