About GreenCAPE

Policy on Conflicts of Interest & Corporate Donations

GreenCAPE is committed to the highest ethical standards to ensure that our educational and activist work is conducted with integrity and without the bias of corporate influence so it may provide a foundation of trust for our members, partners, and the public.

Under no circumstances will policy or program decisions be influenced or affected by any of GreenCAPE’s donors. We will not accept any corporate support that we deem to be in conflict with or inappropriate to the GreenCAPE mission.

GreenCAPE recognizes that corporate support and influence can include both monetary donations and representation within the organization so of necessity this policy applies to all aspects of the organization -corporate funders andindividual members of the Board and staff.

GreenCAPE reserves the right to refuse any contribution or application to the Board. Companies and industries that may be problematic but are not adequately addressed in this policy will be evaluated by the director and, as necessary, by the Board of Directors.

GreenCAPE provides information about pesticides and a variety of other environmental threats. Although we do not engage in any political activities such as lobbying, we do feel that people have the right to make their voices heard.

GreenCAPE, the Cape Alliance for Pesticide Education, was founded in 1998.

The Mission of GreenCAPE is to increase public awareness of the risks of pesticides and other chemicals to health and the vulnerability of the Cape Cod water supply. We educate the public and encourage the use of safer alternatives to polluting chemicals above the Cape's EPA-designated Sole-Source Aquifer--our only drinking water supply. We research, compile and distribute information about pesticides and other pollutants, and provide free informative events with the goal of ensuring clean water for the health of residents, visitors, wildlife and the local economy.

We are an organically-grown grassroots 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization established to identify the hazards of commonly used pesticides and reduce and eliminate unnecessary use of fertilizers and pesticides through adoption of safe alternatives.

All contributions are tax-deductible.
