Welcome to the Maine Community Foundation’s Online Grant Application System.
Please note that if you have not signed in prior to July 2016, you MUST sign up as a NEW USER. The credentials you used before July 2016 will not work. You may use an email and password that you have used before, but start by making a NEW ACCOUNT. Once you log in and begin your application you may save your work and log out safely and return to work in progress at any time.
Please also note the following:
Proposals you submitted previously may not be available through this new system if they are over a year old. If your organization would like to have a copy of one of their previously submitted proposals for reference, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information as possible: date, grant program, project title, etc. Please note that this offer applies only to proposals from the requesting organization.
If you would like to invite others to review applications before they are submitted, please give them full editing privileges on the grant application landing page. If you select "read only", others will only have access to applications that have been submitted and will not be able to edit applications in progress.
Most of the fields in the application are required, however you may use "placeholder" information, such as xxx or zero, to advance through the pages without filling in actual data. The "back" and "next" navigation buttons are at the very bottom of the page.
MCF does not supply a hard-copy of the online proposal, however there is no penalty for starting an application and not submitting it. Please feel free to start an application, enter placeholder data, and then download or print your proposal if you need a hardcopy.
