Giving Circle Grant

Giving Circle Grant Program

Through the Giving Circle Grant Program, CCYP funds creative projects and programs that address key needs for young professionals age 45-and-under on Cape Cod! Each fall, the Giving Circle Grant Program awards up to $10,000 to area nonprofits that offer solutions and resources specifically for young professionals in areas like year-round housing; civic engagement; child and dependent care; and business development.

The Giving Circle Grant is open to proposals from Cape Cod-based 501(c)3 nonprofits, and individual awards range from $500 to $2,500.

The deadline for the 2018 grant cycle has now passed. Please check back in early Summer 2019 for grant program dates and details.

Special thanks to each of these 2018 Grant Recipients for helping to meet critical needs for young workers in our community!
