Grants of up to $15,000 to Maine organizations for programs and projects that advance children's health. In general, the funding source seeks proposals that address the needs of Maine’s poorest and most underserved populations, such as low-income and rural communities.

Successful applicants typically have strong track records and take approaches that are creative but well grounded (e.g., in data, theory, best practices, evaluation methods, etc.).

Funding will be provided for almost all forms of grant requests (e.g., program grants, capacity building grants, challenge grants, matching grants, etc.).

Under these challenging circumstances, The Foundation understands that your organization may need general operating support. As such, grants may be used for general operating support and/or innovative programs/projects, so long as your work addresses the health of Maine children.

Estimated Size of Grant:

As a general rule, individual grants are expected to fall in the $3,000 to $15,000 range.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Maine organizations may apply.

As a rule, the Foundation will not expect to make capital grants (e.g., funding for building, etc.), or grants to individuals.

The 2020 cycle will focus on organizations with operating budgets up to $5 million.

The 2020 cycle, will waive the 3-year waiting period; thereby allowing organizations funded in 2018 and 2019 to apply this year.

The Foundation will not accept unsolicited oral health proposals.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline is April 15th, 2020.

Unlike a typical year where an LOI and then a full application is required, there will be an online LOI form in place of an application. This will create a one-step application process; simplify and shorten the text required in the application; and eliminate the video requirement.

By May 1, 2020, the Foundation will send you an email letting you know whether or not you have been awarded funding.
