The Cape Meares Community Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person. It shall exist in perpetuity for the benefit of the public. The specific purposes of this corporation are:

  • To actively support community projects of an educational, scientific, charitable or historic nature undertaken for the public benefit.
  • To promote ecologically sound stewardship of the community’s natural resources.
  • To create a forum and a voice for the community with which to stay in communication with the local government, particularly in land management, emergency services, homeland security, and in communication with the greater Oregon community in order to share ideas, facilitate coordination, and encourage cooperation to better secure the health and safety of the general public. 
  • To provide a cohesive center within the community where traditions may be honored, and individuals may be brought together with neighbors to build and identify supportive community bonds.
