About Us

Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) is dedicated to supporting the philanthropic community and inspiring charitable giving through educational initiatives and networking opportunities.

PPCI is a nonprofit, volunteer-led membership organization (with only one part-time remote staff member) that was founded in 1991 to support and connect nonprofit professionals, while celebrating charitable giving on the Cape and Islands. PPCI has grown over the years to meet the needs of the membership and offers four educational meetings, three networking events, and hosts the Philanthropy Day conference in November. Visit our Board of Directors page for at look at our leadership.


The Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands welcomes new members throughout the year. Visit our Membership page for additional information or to join online.
