GRANTS AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT HOSPICE SERVICES IN SOUTHERN MAINE

PORTLAND - The Hospice Fund of the Maine Community Foundation seeks applications for grants to support hospice programs in southern Maine, particularly those that provide volunteer and bereavement services in Cumberland and York counties.
Preference will be given to collaborative efforts among hospice programs and other community groups that enhance training, recognition, and/or recruitment of diverse volunteers; and innovative projects that raise awareness of hospice programs and other end-of-life services. 
Applications must be postmarked by February 15, 2011. Organizations will be notified in May. For complete guidelines and a list of last year’s grants, visit http://www.mainecf.org/ or call (877) 700-6800.
In 2010, the Hospice Fund made grants to five Cumberland and York County nonprofits, including:
• Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake, Casco, for a bereavement program for families who have lost a child to an illness
• Harbour Singers, Biddeford, to support the ongoing work of the hospice singers
• Hospice of Southern Maine, Scarborough, for outreach work to faith communities in Cumberland and York counties.
If you have questions or would like to discuss an idea before submitting a proposal, please contact Pam Cleghorn via e-mail at pcleghorn@mainecf.org or by phone at (207) 761-2440.
A statewide foundation with offices in Portland and Ellsworth, the Maine Community Foundation partners with donors and nonprofits to strengthen Maine communities. To learn more, visit http://www.mainecf.org/.
