Community Partner Grants

THE CARIGNAN FUND FOR COMMUNITY PROGRAMS will provide grants of up to $2000 to community organizations to support programming that fosters new and strengthens existing connections between Bates College and our community.

Applications will be accepted from new or established not-for-profit organizations and public agencies serving the communities of Androscoggin County, that work with Bates students in partnership with the College.  Funds are intended to support new or existing public-service projects and programs of those organizations.  Successful applications will demonstrate a commitment to substantive and sustainable partnership.  Funds should not be used primarily for short-term costs, but rather for capacity-building purposes such as research, infrastructure, or resources necessary to the initiative’s growth.  For more information, contact Peggy Rotundo at the Harward Center for Community Partnerships (207-786-8283) or click here to download an application.
DEADLINE: 4:30pm on Friday, November 1, 2019
