Description of purpose

Please tell us a little about the project or activity for which you are requesting funding. Please provide enough detail to allow us to evaluate how your request aligns with our charitable mission.

(5) What is the purpose for which the funding will be used?
We are planning on holding an event on June 14th with the aim of photographing all needed buildings in western Barnstable County (the county is the governing entity that encompasses all of Cape Cod), with the expressed aim of covering NRHP articles and other things that are normally missed. This includes Barnstable, which has around twenty buildings to be photographed. As we are on the fringe of public transportation, we will provide travel reimbursements to all volunteers in order to get the maximum amount of people out here.
(6) How does this purpose align with our mission?
We will help to get photographs of one of the least-photographed counties in Massachusetts, as well as help to illustrate other areas that are unique to the seashore.
