Huntington Common Charitable Fund seeking grant proposals

Monday, November 22, 2021

The Kennebunk Savings Bank Foundation’s Huntington Common Charitable Fund (HCCF) is seeking grant proposals from nonprofits that improve the lives of older adults in York County, Maine. The fund is on track to pay out nearly $185,000 in grants this year, and the next application deadline is December 31st. Applications submitted before the December 31st deadline will be reviewed during the first quarter of 2022.

“We live in such an active, vital region,” said Bradford C. Paige, President & CEO of Kennebunk Savings. “Older adults are such drivers of culture and commerce and what’s great about this fund is the way it emphasizes continued connection and wellness for this valued portion of our population. We are so proud to be its steward.” Recent grants have included an expansion of Southern Maine Agency on Aging’s Meals on Wheels programs, community engagement for Alzheimer’s patients, and an adaptive bicycling program for isolated older adults created by Age Friendly Saco.

The Huntington Common Charitable Fund was created in 2006 to help older adults in York County lead active and fulfilled lives; Kennebunk Savings has administered the fund since its inception.

Proposals will be reviewed in early 2022. Nonprofit organizations with programs and proposals focusing on bettering the lives of older adults in York County can apply at www.kennebunksavings.com/about/community-promise/huntington-common-charitable-fund/.
