The Sadie and Harry Davis Foundation in Fairfield, Maine, has announced the opening of the application period for its Children’s Health Small Grant program.
To be eligible for a grant, projects/programs must advance children’s health in Maine. In general, the foundation looks for proposals that address Maine’s poorest and most underserved populations (e.g., low-income, rural, etc.).
(Note: the foundation will not consider oral health-related proposals. Organizations with an oral health program that could help address needs within its broader children’s health work are encouraged to connect with the Maine Partnership for Children’s Oral Health.)
Almost all types of grants will be considered (e.g., general operating support, program, capacity buildings, challenge, matching, etc.). The foundation does not generally make capital grants or grants to individuals.
Successful applicants typically have a strong track record and take approaches that are creative but well grounded (e.g., in data, theory, best practices, evaluation methods, etc.).
As a general rule, individual grants are expected to range between $3,000 and $15,000. The foundation strongly prefers to fund organizations with budgets under $5 million.
Applications are due May 31.
