HCCC is involved in the Cape Community 

In addition to our support for a Harvard student fellowship with a Cape non-profit (see Student Support | Summer Fellowship Program), club members are active and leaders in many non-profit organizations working to enrich the lives of Cape residents.   HCCC has periodically partnered with community organizations to offer programs for members and also support the organization's mission.  In times of special need, HCCC has made donations to select Cape non-profit efforts. A sample of these partnerships are below.  We welcome members to contact Peter Bono with ideas for joint programs that benefit HCCC and a non-profit organization.
