Nonprofit and public organizations seeking funding for projects that strengthen communities are encouraged to apply to Maine Community Foundation’s Community Building Grant Program. A volunteer committee of Knox County community and business leaders will review grants and make recommendations for funding. In 2018, the committee awarded more than $36,000 in grants to 13 nonprofits.

The deadline for applying is Feb.15. Application, guidelines, and a list of recent grants are available at mainecf.org.
