The Maine Philanthropy Center assists nonprofit organizations by helping them find funding sources for their organizations.
We have a variety of services and resources available.
Directory of Maine Grantmakers - Our Directory of Maine Grantmakers is the only Maine-based resource for funding opportunties. It's available in both print and online versions. We also partner with the Foundation Center to offer public access to their powerful database of national funders and other grant research tools. Online access to the Directory from your own computer is for MPC members only. Access to the Directory or the Foundation Center Directory from our office at the USM Library is free and open to all.
Research Tutorials and In-Person Research Appointments - Not been to see us yet? Come in for a Research Tutorial, or contact us for an appointment to use our grant research databases today! We can help you to identify a list of potential funders, the first step in securing grants! This is free and open to the public. If you are here to do that research please fill this form out for us.
Grant Research Resources - We've developed a set of resources to help you with your grant research, including a Grantseeker's Primer with information on getting started, tips for using the online Directory of Maine Grantmakers, outside resources, tools to keep track of potential funders, and the Common Grant Application.
Nonprofit Resources - A listing of all MPC's resources, events, and information for nonprofits.
