Since 1979, the focus of grants made by the Woods Hole Foundation has evolved to match community needs. Grants have ranged from the preservation of buildings used by area nonprofits, to operating funds for local service organizations. All grants are intended to maintain and improve the quality of life and character of our community.

The Woods Hole Foundation awarded two grants of $10,000 each to two local organizations for projects related to housing or the environment. The awardees of the Special Grants are Farming Falmouth (environment award), and Falmouth Housing Trust (housing award). Congratulations to the Special Grant recipients!
These one-time grants were made possible by the Woods Hole Foundation and a FY 2023 legislative earmark grant of $15,000 to the Foundation from State Representative Dylan Fernandes. The Foundation thanks Rep. Fernandes for his commitment to those issues which must be addressed to assure a healthy and safe environment for all citizens and our beautiful community.
At our September 2023 Annual Meeting outgoing President Rachel Switzer thanked Cape and Islands State Representative (and Woods Hole native) Dylan Fernandes for enabling the Commonwealth funding which enabled the one-time 2023 Special Grant in Housing or the Environment.
