Community Impact and Charitable Donations

Wequassett's Commitment

As part of our philanthropic effort, Wequassett is dedicated to creating meaningful change to enrich the community in which we live and serve.   The focus of our support is to benefit education, conservation, and workforce vibrancy.  To aid this endeavor, guests will be charged a community impact fee of 1% per night and 100% of the fees collected will be passed directly to local organizations and causes for their roles in creating purposeful positive change in the local community.  Please note that the fee is optional and can be waived and that the monies will never go toward hotel operations or expenses.

We are grateful for your support.  It was voted on and determined by Wequassett’s team to dedicate the funds raised in 2023 to the following organizations:

Lighthouse Charter School, WE CAN, and Harwich Conservation Trust.

In addition to our Community Impact initiatives, we have welcomed dogs!  Travel is better with your furry companion and that’s why we’re thrilled to welcome guests and their pets in 2023. Dogs will be treated as VIPs with plush beds, toys, and treats. Our doggie concierge will arrange for play dates and grooming services.  A portion of the daily pet fee will be donated to the Animal Rescue League – Brewster Shelter.


Join us and have an impactful stay!

Red River Valley Preserve Project

When 12-plus acres of the Red River Valley was put up for sale this year, the future of the land turned to us — all of us. Optimistic that the Cape community would see the many benefits of preserving this priority watershed land, Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) limbered up to start the marathon of raising $4,250,000. Thank you for stepping up generously. So far, $3,885,000 in donations and pledges have been committed.

Season of Giving

Your contributions have made a significant difference in our ongoing efforts to give back to the community that we serve.  This December we have partnered with Community Servings and Outer Cape Health Services to highlight food and health equity on Cape Cod.  We hope you will join us for our inaugural Winter season at Wequassett and experience the joy of giving back.
