It continues to inspire us – to see the best of our community rise up and lift up neighbors in need during the worst of times.
I am truly in awe of the generosity of so many individuals, businesses and foundations who want to make an impact – who want to make things better. There are certainly many parts of last year we would rather forget. However, our focus is on the many other moments we are grateful for; those that give us strength and optimism as we navigate 2021.
At the Cape and Islands United Way, we are emboldened and strong, thanks to contributions and support from you and so many others who recognize the value living united now -- at a time when we are more isolated than ever.
Together, we are tackling issues around food security, affordable housing, education, health, and improving financial stability for the people in our community who are most vulnerable. Despite the challenges brought on by a global pandemic and economic uncertainty, our collective efforts in 2020 made a meaningful and measurable impact.

Through our Community Impact Grants, the Community Response Fund which is addressing the pandemic, our Women United affinity group and micro grants sponsored by a family foundation, we have invested more than $500,000 in community based solutions to needs exacerbated by the pandemic.
We don’t know what 2021 will bring, but be assured with the continued, collective power of living united, we can make a difference.
