Identifying needs. Supporting solutions.

Our mission is to energize Midcoast Maine nonprofit agencies
through finance and guidance, supporting a network of
resources stronger than any single organization.

Our areas of focus are food, housing, health & safety, and economic security.

United Midcoast Charities was founded in 1942. Today, UMC awards grants to more than 50 agencies in any given year, totaling around $500,000 in support.
