Cape Cod Foundation seeks professionals for consultant directory

Cape Cod Foundation to update directory of consultants for non-profit organizations

YARMOUTHPORT â?? The Cape Cod Foundation is seeking professionals who are interested in being included in an updated directory of consultants who perform work that supports the organizational development needs of the regionâ??s nonprofit organizations.

The directory is not meant to be a referral service, but rather a resource tool for nonprofits to address organizational needs. â??This is a resource to help organizations identify consultants and select the one most appropriate for their needs,â? said Elizabeth Gawron, President of the Cape Cod Foundation.

The Foundation is gathering consultant information by using a questionnaire to identify the areas of expertise and the types of organizations generally focused on by each consultant. Questionnaires may be obtained by calling the Cape Cod Foundation. Questionnaires are due back at the Foundation by December 8.

The existing directory provides nonprofits with a wide range of services with multiple listings for support with board governance, program planning, strategic planning, grant writing and fundraising, and many other areas of organizational needs.

The consultant directory is a component of the Foundationâ??s nonprofit support program, which is designed to assist in strengthening the nonprofit sector by providing training and services to local organizations.

The Cape Cod Foundation is a charitable community trust established as a non-profit organization in 1989 to serve the people of Cape Cod by linking community resources with community needs. More importantly, the Foundation extends the reach of philanthropic dollars by pooling and investing funds to leverage more spending ability and provide a perpetual resource for the community. In 2005, the Cape Cod Foundation distributed a record setting amount of funds in grants and scholarships totaling more than $9 million.

More information about how to be included in the directory, contact the Cape Cod Foundation by calling the toll free 800-947-2322, or visit the website at www.capecodfoundation.org.
