Honoring Coast Guard members and their families

The Cape May County Coast Guard Community Foundation provides programs that assist and honor Coast Guard personnel and their families to create a vibrant and welcoming “hometown” for them in Cape May County.

Our Charter Program is the Community Activity Program.  This Program reimburses Active-Duty USCG families living and or stationed in Cape May County for community related activities.  In 2022, the Foundation funded over $10,000 in reimbursements for activities such as gymnastics, karate, little league and even Irish dance lessons! 

The Backpack Brigade Program began in 2022 as a means of support for families to get a head start on back-to-school shopping.  USCG families signed up for the Backpack Brigade Program and were given backpacks full of supplies as their children headed back to school. 

Other means of support we have provided include:

Our goal is to continue to strive to identify programs that meet the needs of Coast Guard members, their families and Recruits in Training in our community.
