Application FAQ’s

Important announcement regarding the 2021 grant cycle:

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Morton-Kelly Trust has operated differently than in the past. In 2021 we will continue our focus on providing operating support grants for our longstanding partners. Applications will again be considered this year only from organizations that have received at least two grants from the Trust since 2015.  We recognize that while organizations that depend on admissions and ticket sales have been particularly hard hit, every Maine organization has faced serious challenges since 2020.

We anticipate returning to our usual project-based grant format in the future.

We will observe our usual October 1 application deadline and anticipate decisions in December.
