Provincetown Community Compact
Long Business Description:

27 years of nurturing community

Provincetown Community Compact, The Compact, sponsors the annual Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla, a benefit for  AIDS, women’s health & the community since 1988. The Compact, established in 1993 by artist Jay Critchley, is a community-building and philanthropic organization that nurtures the vitality of the community, connecting the environment, the arts and the economy.

This year’s Swim for Life is a summerlong challenge, through September 12: Swimming in Place – our place, your place, encouraging swimmers, and others, to swim where they are or create a challenge for themselves. Invite your family, friends and coworkers to support you and pledge money while you: dance, jog, cook, bike, dribble a basketball, write, create – in your bathtub, on the beach, in a pond or pool or anywhere. Join us!

The Compact’s mission is to advance the health and cultural well being of the town, its people, and the natural environment of the Lower Cape. It also acts as fiscal sponsor (Think-ubator Project) for social, environmental and artistic projects and manages two Dune Shack residencies.

It’s Prayer Ribbons initiative, begun at the Swim for Life, which has collected 3,000 colored ribbons with messages honoring both those who have died and those living, was invited to Orlando, Florida for the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub massacre on June 12. A special strand of ribbons that includes black ribbons with the names of the victims inscribed in gold (plus one for those injured) is installed at Orlando City Hall during the annual commemoration.

Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association
Long Business Description:

The Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association is a 100% volunteer-run organization of concerned taxpayers whose economic and cultural contributions in Provincetown are vital to the preservation and sustainability of the Town, and yet they are denied a meaningful voice, participation in any local government decision-making, or the right to vote. This fundamental unfairness is completely at odds with the spirit and rich democratic history of Provincetown. It also violates the very tenets upon which our country was founded. It is the mission of the PPRTA to promote awareness and correct this fundamental inequality.

The Commons Provincetown
Long Business Description:

As both a school and community center, 46 Bradford Street has been a Provincetown asset for over a century. The Provincetown Commons will continue that tradition by creating a year-round working space for creative individuals and start-up businesses, and by maintaining 46 Bradford Street as a space for education and community gatherings.

The new intergenerational space, including established Provincetown artists and welcoming of the next generation, is critical to the town’s effort to both preserve and grow the arts as a vital part of our economy and as a facet of our tourism. And building a technological hub for media arts will enable new types of creative innovation to take root here.

The new space will operate with a membership model and is anticipated to include studios, a flexible classroom space, an exhibition space, shared desks, high-speed internet, meeting space, and digital media production facilities.

We are committed to developing educational programs and providing civic space for public programs that anchor 46 Bradford Street to its historic uses.
