Cape and Islands United Way Grants nearly $400,000 to local nonprofits

Hyannis, MA – The Cape and Islands United Way (CIUW) announced funding for 26 local nonprofit organizations at their grant reception at the Hyannis JFK Museum in May.


Focus areas for the community impact grants include housing, financial stability, women and children, health, and education — with an additional team that serves Martha's Vineyard.

The CIUW’s community impact model embraces a collective vision and a coordinated, integrated response to support long-term solutions.


Critical programs supported with this funding include: housing rehabilitation, homelessness prevention, meal supplements for children and families, food, fuel and rental assistance, caregiver support, recovery initiatives, youth mentoring and hospice and palliative care. A complete list of current grantees and programs funded can be found at capeandislandsuw.org/partners.


“This is such a great example of how support of the Cape and Islands United Way makes a direct impact in the community,” said Mark Skala, the organization’s President and CEO. “A special thank you to all our businesses, corporate leaders and individual donors who

understand that our organization is needed now more than ever. We are so grateful to have presented nearly $400,000 in this latest round of grants.”


The community impact grants are in addition to the more than $36,000 that has been distributed from the CIUW’s micro grant program this year, which is funded on a rolling basis.
