CARE for the Cape & Islands™ was founded in 2012 as the Cape and Islands’ first travelers’ philanthropy initiative to encourage, support, and create opportunities for visitors to donate their “time, talent, and treasure”. Ultimately, CARE seeks to tap travelers’ growing interest in and support of eco-tourism and green-travel, and their philanthropic inclinations to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the Cape & Islands as a national treasure.
Why Cape Cod and the Islands?
Our scenic beauty and pristine coastline are enjoyed and appreciated by millions of visitors each year, presenting a need to protect its unique qualities. This program will help sustain the region’s fragile ecosystem, culture and heritage that draw visitors and residents to vacation, work and live.
