There are many ways to support the Cultural Center, and your consideration of financial support is much appreciated. Whether a family membership, sponsoring an event, or making a charitable contribution, we know that you have many choices when giving your philanthropic dollars and it is essential that you understand why you are giving to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod.
Maybe you love the music cafes when you dance the night away with friends?
Or maybe you’re inspired by exhibitions like Mutual Muses or our annual Member’s Exhibit.
Possibly you are someone who wants to get up close and personal with art and takes a spin in a ballroom dance class or cooks a gourmet meal in the Culinary Arts Center.
Whatever pushes your arts and culture buttons, we are excited to have you. You should also know that when you give to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, you are doing much more than supporting the arts and culture you have come to love and enjoy. Your giving also helps more than 40 organizations that are doing great things on the Cape.
The Center has become the gathering place for human service, education, and civic organizations that need space to convene and celebrate. We have been serving the community in this capacity since our inception, and, with your help, we will continue to partner on facility and staffing needs with our non-profit colleagues.

“The Center has a reputation of fiscal responsibility that has led to the support of many donors. Just three full-time staff members and an army of volunteers keep the Center alive and buzzing with activity demonstrating the commitment of this community to their Cultural Center. This facility operates year round offering both after-school and summer programming for all ages. The money that has been invested in the Center benefits the citizens directly.” Carol Woodbury, Former Superintendant of D-Y Schools
“The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is one of the most exciting and dynamic institutions this region has seen. With a reputation for putting on first-class event and exhibits … all on a shoestring … the Cultural Center of Cape Cod has in its brief history raised the bar for bringing a new level of excitement and interest in the arts to this region, through a cornucopia of works and interactive events that reach out to everyone on the Cape. … The Cultural Center is a beacon of excellence and pursues its mission by engaging all of us in the arts through meaningful, dynamic dialogue.” Jane de Groot, Director of Program Resources, Duffy Health Center

The Cultural Center depends on active and dedicated volunteers who serve in many capacities:
Reception Desk: Volunteers answer the phone, process reservations and registrations, welcome and assist visitors, process sales in the gift shop, and assist with clerical and other tasks as needed. There are usually two shifts, Monday through Friday, from 10am-1pm and 1pm to 5pm. Volunteers in this role will be trained to operate a credit card machine, forward phone calls to appropriate staff, and otherwise manage front desk operations. If you are interested in taking a weekly time slot, please contact Business Administrator Meg McNamara at 508-394-7100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Events: Volunteers help at events ranging from concerts to art receptions, classes to festivals. Duties may include preparing and passing food, pouring wine, assisting patrons, setting up and breaking down chairs and tables (if possible), and other tasks. We send a monthly email listing of upcoming events so volunteers can choose which they’d like to work. If you would like to be on our email list and receive training, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Nicki Palmer at email@example.com.
Buildings and Grounds: Able-bodied volunteers willing to help set up for events and/or break down afterward, paint as needed, assist with landscaping seasonally, and otherwise help keep the Center in good shape are invited to contact Nicki at the address above or Executive Director Robert Nash at 508-394-7100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you have a special skill—like preparing grant proposals, writing press releases, or managing data—please get in touch with Nicki or Associate Director Lauren Wolk at email@example.com
