At United Way of Mid-Maine, we recognize that only by working together can we create sustained improvements in the quality of life in our region. UWMM helps orchestrate collaborations, funding, professional development, and volunteer support to nonprofits in Mid-Maine so they can continue providing vital services to our neighbors.

Direct funding and other resources are provided to the Partner Agencies to run programs that directly correlate to the vision of one or more of UWMM’s three focus areas: Health, Education, and Financial Stability. Partner Agencies apply bi-annually to receive grant money for their programs and the CITs review the budgets, outcomes, and missions of each program, perform site visits, and allocate funds based on these factors.

Requests for Funding

Typically, an agency must be an approved, committed partner agency for at least one year before being eligible for the funding process. UWMM usually commits funding for a two year period. All current partner agencies will be notified by email about the next open request for proposals for partner agency funding. Notice is also posted on each Partner Agency’s reporting portal home page.
