About this funder:



The Kelley Foundation is a leader in fostering the means for improving the quality of life for the residents of Cape Cod. The organization's members and board of directors represent a broad cross-section of the commercial, professional and social service life of the community.

Kelley Foundation grants are highly diversified, often innovative, and reach into almost every aspect of life on the Cape. Along with substantial grants to support the Cape Cod Healthcare Foundations, grants have been made to a variety of other health, social, service, and cultural organizations.

The foundation's grants are sometimes used as seed money by young organizations and serve to recommend them to other larger off-Cape funding sources. In this way, the dollars of these grants are leveraged and may produce substantial future results for the recipients.
