History of the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation, Inc.
The Cape Cod Military Support Foundation, Inc. has been established by a number of local citizens who are interested in and committed to supporting the military and their dependents assigned to Joint Base Cape Cod and the Coast Guard based in Woods Hole.
The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation with the objective of raising funds through donations, grants and special functions to provide support to members of the Air Force, Air National Guard, Coast Guard Air Station, Army and Army National Guard and their dependents assigned to Joint Base Cape Cod and Coast Guard Southeast Sector in Woods Hole. Donations to the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation, Inc. are eligible for deduction from Federal taxes to the full extent of the law.
The Foundation will provide this support through the granting of scholarships, supporting the Chaplain’s fund which helps needy families, supporting the military units’ family days, supporting annual military awards and recognition events, providing backpacks for students, and more.
This new Foundation is lead by a fifteen-member Board of Directors from the communities surrounding these military installations, including some who are also associated with the Otis Civilian Advisory Council, a local civic organization which has been supporting the military community for nearly seventy years, one of the oldest such organizations in the country.
