Application FAQ’s

Important announcement regarding the 2020 grant cycle:

In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, the trustees have recently made direct grants to key Maine food and poverty relief organizations. They have also voted to suspend the Trust’s regular grantmaking program for 2020.

In its place, the Trust will accept proposals for General Operating Support from organizations that have received at least two Morton-Kelly grants over the past five years. This, we hope, will allow our longstanding nonprofit partners maximum flexibility to manage their organizations during the current economic crisis. Applications will be accepted electronically starting on August 14. We will observe our usual October 1 application deadline and anticipate decisions in December.

Details on this year’s application process will be available on this website in late July or early August.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to restoring the Trust’s general grant program and again welcoming new applicant organizations in the future.
