Grant Received for Programming (2023)

Marking their seventh annual funding cycle, the Board of Directors of the Cape Ann Community Foundation (CACF) announced in June that they have awarded grants to seven Cape Ann area non-profit and community organizations. Age & Dementia Friendly Cape Ann (ADFCA) is excited to be one of the awardees.

“We wish to congratulate the seven successful grant applicants, and we would also like to commend and express our thanks to all the Cape Ann area non-profits and civic organizations that submitted proposals.” said CACF Board President Ruth Pino. She noted: “We also urge all Cape Ann residents and visitors to buy the Cape Ann License Plate to ensure that we will have ample funds to support more of these worthy initiatives. Just $20 a year is added to our registration renewals, but the benefits for Cape Ann that these dollars help deliver are immeasurable.”

ADFCA will utilize the grant to fund programming for the Cape Ann Virtual Senior Center. The Cape Ann Virtual Senior Center (CAVSC) is a collaboration of the Councils on Aging (COA) in Manchester, Rockport, Essex, and Gloucester, SeniorCare and 1623 Studios. This effort brings COA programs to the comfort and safety of residents’ homes through programming on Channel 67.
