Maine Initiatives: COVID-19 Community Care Fund Fund

About This Fund

We, at the Maine Initiatives, have launched the COVID-19 Community Care Fund because getting resources into the hands of grassroots and community-based organizations is essential in times of crisis. Trusting their leadership and wisdom is how we ensure that the needs of all Mainers are being met in this crisis.

Through the COVID-19 Community Care Fund, we are raising and pooling funds to make rapid-response grants to the grassroots organizations led by and advocating for those folks who are most at risk in this crisis: indigenous, black and immigrant folks; working class, low income, and poor people; and those that are too often pushed to the margins through incarceration, homelessness, disability, etc. These organizations are our grantee partners. We trust them to lead us in this moment. And they require urgent community support.
