Grants ranging from $2,500 to $25,000 to Maine nonprofits for restoring environmental and human health through cultivating local gardens and preparing plant-based foods. Applicants should ensure that their projects align with the following values and funding priorities: community rooted, equitable, mutually beneficial, empowering for health, and connective.
Nourishment strategies include, but are not limited to:
The Foundation prioritizes funding organizations with a history of embodying these in their work. When evaluating new projects and programs, the Foundation searches for natural alignment and designed commitment to these values:
Community Rooted, Community Grown
The Foundation believes organizations rooted in, and responsive to, community desire are more likely to be relevant, meaningful, and successful. Projects developed and implemented with ongoing involvement from stakeholders and target populations build connectivity and empowerment for Maine communities.
The Foundation prioritizes organizations supporting human wholeness and healthy choices for underrepresented populations and geographic regions throughout the state of Maine.
The Foundation respects organizations striving for a symbiotic relationship between people and the planet. The Foundation is seeking projects that simultaneously improve health outcomes for individuals while protecting or restoring local landscapes.
Empowering for Health
The Foundation admires organizations empowering individual and community health choices, particularly disease-preventative nourishment and nature-based work, service or play.
The Foundation feels organizations motivating people to continually connect with neighbors and nature are essential to stem the growing tide of social isolation affecting all age groups and many rural communities.
