Grants ranging from $500 to $50,000 to Maine nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools for activities that address the root causes or consequences of environmental and social problems throughout the State. The Foundation prioritizes requests in the areas of literacy, the arts, and community services.

The Foundation prefers to make one-time grants that improve organizational capacity. Endowment grants are rare, as are matching and challenge grants.

Any 501(c)(3) organization in the state of Maine is eligible.
