Identifying needs. Supporting solutions.
Our mission is to energize Midcoast Maine nonprofit agencies
through finance and guidance, supporting a network of
resources stronger than any single organization.
Our areas of focus are food, housing, health & safety, and economic security.
Through a yearly grant application and review process, UMC funds agencies that primarily benefit residents of Knox and Waldo counties.
United Midcoast Charities was founded in 1942. Today, UMC awards grants to more than 50 agencies
in any given year, totaling around $500,000 in support.
