Apply for Funding

Community Impact Grants

Every year nonprofits in Aroostook County apply for funding through our grant-making process. Those who apply must align with our goals around education, health, and financial stability. Community volunteers review applications and determine who will be funded.  

Community Grants

These small grants are selected by the United Way Board of Directors. Contact Sarah Duncan at or call 207-764-5197 for more information.

COVID-19 Recovery Grants

If you are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that has been impacted by COVID-19 or is serving those who are, you may be eligible for grant funding from the recovery fund. Contact Sarah at or call 207-764-5197 to find out more about the application process.

Donor Designations

During our annual campaign, donors can designate their gifts to a 501(c)(3) other than the United Way that services people in need. When that happens, we process payments to those nonprofits and issue checks as funds are collected.
