Coming Soon!

The Maranacook Education Foundation is pleased to announce that we will accepting applications for our annual Classroom and Community Grant Program beginning on September 20, 2021. On that day, we will provide an online application link to those who are interested in applying for funds that will be available later this fall.

The Maranacook Education Foundation fosters innovation and excellence in the Maranacook communities and schools by seeking resources and funding initiatives that will benefit learners of all ages.

In support of this mission, the Foundation has established a grant program to provide financial support to initiatives benefiting learners of all ages. This program is open to schools and community non-profit organizations in the communities of Fayette, Manchester, Mount Vernon, Readfield, and Wayne.

Grants of $250-$1000 will be awarded based on the following identified areas of need and interest:

  • Projects that augment or enhance existing curricula and virtual learning;

  • Projects serving a currently underserved segment of the community;

  • Projects that connect school and community or provide collaboration between school and the larger community;

  • Projects that build the educational infrastructure of the communities;

  • Projects that promote the health of the community;

  • Projects that break down barriers to education


Schools – Teachers or non-teaching personnel from the schools within RSU #38 and Fayette may submit proposals. Collaborations between teachers/school personnel are encouraged. Though there is no limit on the number of applications that may be submitted from any one school, to ensure that grant dollars are distributed widely, the Foundation will not award more than one grant to an individual school within the same grant cycle.

Community organizations – Not-for-profit, tax-exempt, community organizations may submit proposals. Collaborations among community organizations and between community organizations and schools are encouraged. Community organizations may submit multiple applications, but the Foundation will not award more than one grant to any individual organization within the same grant cycle.

Look for more information and the application that will be distributed on September 20th!
