The most important piece of finding a funder that is a good fit for your organization is doing thorough research. We are happy to offer nonprofits in Maine resources and help related to grant research.
The Directory of Maine Grantmakers
The Maine Philanthropy Center produces a Directory of Maine Grantmakers with information on foundations that give in Maine. This Directory is available in an online version to all our Members, and is also for sale in a print version.
In-Person Research Help
Through our partnership with Candid, MPC has access to national databases of funders and grants at our office location in the USM Glickman Family Library.
We highly recommend coming to a free tutorial on using our resources to start your research process. You are also welcome to visit our office to use our resources-- please make an appointment as we have a small staff and want to ensure someone is here to help you. If you are doing research in our office please fill out this form.
If you are looking for federal grant opportunities they will be listed at Grants.gov, and if you are not able to come into our office to utilize our database you can look at foundation tax forms using these resources.
