Maximum Grant Amount
Sadie and Harry Davis Foundation is accepting applications for the 2020 Small Grants program for projects and programs that advance Maine children's health.
Almost all forms of grants will be considered (e.g., program grants, capacity building grants, challenge grants, matching grants, etc.). However, as a rule, the Foundation would not expect to make capital grants (e.g., funding for equipment, building, etc.), or grants to individuals.
Successful applicants typically have strong track records and take approaches that are creative but well grounded (e.g., in data, theory, best practices, evaluation methods, etc.).
In general, the Foundation looks for proposals that address Maine’s poorest and most underserved populations (e.g., low-income, rural, etc.).
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE 2020 SMALL GRANT CYCLE:
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sadie and Harry Davis Foundation aims to maximize the efficiency with which they distribute Children’s Health Small Grant funds. To this end, they are making the following amendments to this year’s grant schedule and requirements:
- Unlike a typical year where they require an LOI and then a full application, they will be using the online LOI form in place of an application. This will create a one-step application process; simplify and shorten the text required in the application; and eliminate the video requirement.
- Under these challenging circumstances, they understand that your organization may need general operating support. As such, grants may be used for general operating support and/or innovative programs/projects, so long as your work addresses the health of Maine children.
- For the 2020 cycle, they will focus on organizations with operating budgets up to $5 million.
- For the 2020 cycle, they will waive the 3-year waiting period; thereby allowing organizations funded in 2018 and 2019 to apply this year.
