The Cape Cod Times Needy Fund, Inc. has been helping local residents since 1936. Our mission is to provide urgent financial assistance for basic human needs to individuals and families residing on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket who are experiencing temporary financial hardships. Most of the money raised comes from Cape Cod individuals, families, businesses, clubs, civic organizations, schools and faith communities.

A wishing well is our logo – every dollar donated helps make our neighbor’s wishes come true – the wish to stay in their own home, have food in their pantry, a reliable car to get to work, heat in the winter, medicine to heal.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors – that’s what the Needy Fund is all about.

Cape Cod Times Needy Fund

The Needy Fund’s first mission was to provide holiday meals to the neediest families on Cape Cod. Now, the Fund provides the residents of Cape Cod and the islands with financial assistance for a range of basic human needs when they fall on tough times.

Families often struggle to make ends meet and are faced with challenging choices: heat or food? medicine or rent? The Needy Fund is here to help these families and individuals through cancer, car accidents, family deaths, job loss, temporary and permanent disabilities, serious childhood illnesses, fire, spousal abandonment and many other urgent situations all year long.

When a crisis is too big for one agency to handle, the Needy Fund networks and partners with local community agencies to get people through the toughest times.

One of the over 4,000 yearly recipients of Needy Fund assistance shared this comment:

“Thank you, not only for your support, but also for your compassion, understanding and advice. It gave me hope and encouragement. I cannot thank you enough.” – P.W., Martha’s Vineyard
