Innovation Fund

The United Way of Eastern Maine Innovation fund supports critical collaborations, initiatives and programs outside of the three-year Community Investment cycle. The main focus of this fund is to support collaboration and innovation in line with UWEM’s mission “to mobilize the caring power of people and communities” and the following bold goals.

  • All children have quality early learning experiences.
  • Prevent, treat and support recovery from Substance Use Disorder
  • Meet basic needs and promote self-sufficiency for all.

Please note that availability of funds is limited and the Strategic Investment Grants process remains the primary vehicle for program funding.
