The Maine Community Foundation has created the Sagadahoc County Fund to support nonprofit and public organizations in Sagadahoc County.

A volunteer committee of Lincoln and Sagadahoc county community and business leaders called the Southern Midcoast Committee reviews grants and makes recommendations for funding. In 2018, the committee awarded more than $80,000 in grants to 13 nonprofits.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 15.

The county funds are built through donations from the community. those who would like more information about the Sagadahoc or Lincoln County Funds can contact Laura Young at 877-700-6800 or [email protected].
