Narragansett Number One Foundation (NNOF)
Grants to Maine nonprofits, agencies, and institutions providing community and social services to the residents of Buxton and the surrounding areas. Funding is intended to support local fire and police departments, schools, parks and recreational facilities, libraries and museums, shelters for children, the homeless, abused persons, animals, and religious organizations.
The Foundation was organized and will be operated exclusively to further "religious, charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes," to "foster national or international amateur sports competition," and "for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals."
The Foundation provides funds for:
- Start-up expenses
- New or special projects
- General operating support
GrantWatch ID#: 179066
Who May Apply:
- Nonprofit organizations that have received a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service recognizing tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
- Any state, possession of the United States, or political subdivision (a public school, town, city or government agency) if the proposed grant is to be used exclusively for public purposes.
Although the Foundation accepts grant applications from any qualified organization, it is expected that over the next three to five years, the Foundation will make the majority of grants to public charities in the Town of Buxton, Maine and the surrounding areas including schools, fire departments, police departments, libraries, parks, recreational facilities, churches, religious groups, shelters for children, the homeless and abused persons, museums, and shelters for animals. Once the immediate needs of this geographic area in southern Maine are addressed, it is likely that future grants will be made to charities throughout Maine and in other states.
The Foundation does not provide funds for:
- Campaigns to elect candidates to public office
- Lobbying or propaganda campaigns
- Programs or projects that discriminate
Applications should be received by NNOF no earlier than November 1, 2018 and no later than April 1, 2019.
Grants will be awarded on or before June 30, 2019.
An organization receiving a grant will be expected to agree to the requirements of the grant no later than June 1, 2019 or the date specified by the Foundation. Failure to meet this date will jeopardize the organization's grant request.
An organization receiving a grant will be required to provide reports on its financial status and the status of its funded project. Such organization may also be subject to evaluations, audits and site visits by the Foundation. Organizations that fail to comply with post-grant reporting, audit, or inspection requirements of the Foundation will not be considered for future grants.
