Three different types of grants are available for non-profit organizations in Maine. The primary focus of the Foundation is to support projects that positively impact the environment, animal welfare, or human well-being. The first type of grant is an operating grant and the funding is provided in order to enable the organization to meet its annual budget. The second type of grant is a project grant and funding is provided to support a new project. The third type of grant supports acquisition and stewardship of specific capital assets such as buildings, land or other tangible resources required by organizations in the performance of their charitable work.
The three areas of interest are:
1. The Foundation seeks to work with Maine's animal welfare community to build the sector's capacity - enabling it to meet the objectives of improving the quality of life and care for companion and farm animals throughout the state. Capacity building efforts that will have significant, measurable impact on organizations' ability to perform their work - including leadership development; improved sheltering, management and governance practices; and fundraising sophistication - are of particular interest.
2. Community conservation protects natural resources while deliberately addressing additional needs of the community such as public health, economic development, arts and culture, and housing. The Foundation supports community-driven conservation activities that preserve natural resources while strengthening communities and the ties between people and the environment.
3. Hunger affects people throughout the state of Maine. The Foundation seeks to reduce the number of people adversely impacted by lack of nutritious food and supports efforts that will reduce the numbers of food insecure people through systemic change and increased access to nutritious food.
Projects of interest will be collaborative in nature, recognizing that healthy community development involves economic development; thoughtful planning for the built and un-built environment; consideration of human health impacts; as well as opportunities for educational, cultural, and recreational enrichment.
