Rockport Exchange Receives $3,000 from the Cape Ann Community Foundation

The Cape Ann Community Foundation disperses funds every year to worthy local causes. Rockport Exchange is thrilled to be the recipient of a $3,000 grant from the CACF to continue our initiatives in promoting and supporting local food networks.

The CACF is funded through the sale of specially-issued Cape Ann license plates. Your purchase of a Cape Ann license plate supports the work of the Cape Ann Community Foundation while promoting all that Cape Ann has to offer: it’s a win-win! For more, check out the work of the Cape Ann Community Foundation through their website, where you can also purchase license plates.
