Like many nonprofits, Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) has reimagined our reach in the community amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. With an all-volunteer board of directors and one part-time administrative employee, we have persevered in providing monthly virtual education and networking opportunities so many of us longed for during the past 18 months.
In spite of financial challenges posed to our operations, we have found a way to continue to deliver exceptional year-round programming that fosters a more vibrant and philanthropic Cape and Islands. And while PPCI has evolved over its 30-year history, our mission remains the same: to provide our diverse nonprofit community with high quality education and networking that celebrates the impact of philanthropy on Cape Cod and the Islands.
As an organization primarily focused on helping others to fundraise, PPCI respectfully requests that you consider a personal donation this year beyond a PPCI membership fee. Your support will help us to close out the year strong while continuing to provide the programming you expect from us, whether virtually or in person. Our marquee event, Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod, continues but with lower projected sponsorship and attendee revenues which have previously kept us afloat.
If we have helped you, or a colleague or board member to grow from our programming and events, or if we have helped you to gain career insights or job leads from networking or other PPCI resources, please help us to continue to provide these opportunities for you and others, at a level possible for you.
We understand that many of you work and/or volunteer for our local non-profits on the Cape and the Islands. By nature, we are “givers.” In this year of transition, your support is crucial in imagining a post-pandemic PPCI. In the short and long term, we will continue to book nationally recognized keynote speakers for Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod and source local and regional presenters for timely educational sessions that matter most to you and our shared community. Together, we can help one another grow, despite the challenges we face.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting PPCI.
