All Maine foundations commit their philanthropy to creating a better Maine. A number of them support efforts related to education, including college-going. Some partner directly with us.
First and foremost, the Harold Alfond Foundation is the moving force behind the creation of the Alfond Scholarship Foundation. With Mr. Alfond’s vision, and a remarkable financial commitment from the foundation, we were able to create the Alfond Scholarship Foundation and the Harold Alfond College Challenge.
Recently, new partners have joined our efforts, including:
- Through a partnership with JTG Foundation we will soon work in Head Starts in several communities in three counties around the state (Androscoggin, Cumberland, and Kennebec) to encourage and support Family Savings.
- Through a partnership with the Maine Community Foundation we look forward to working with families in Washington County as students enter Kindergarten to again focus on Family Savings.
