PORTLAND & ELLSWORTH — Breanna Pinkham Bebb of Northport is the newest member of the Maine Community Foundation’s Waldo County Grantmaking Committee.

MaineCF’s county committees are made up of community members who live or work in the county and serve as local ambassadors for the foundation, sharing their knowledge and providing on-the-ground local leadership for the foundation.

The Waldo County Grantmaking Committee’s volunteer county advisers review grant proposals for MaineCF’s Community Building Grant Program and recommend grant awards from the Waldo County Fund. Community Building supports a broad range of projects and organizations across the state, including arts, education, environment, economic development, and human services.

Bebb is the senior branch office administrator for Edward Jones Investments in Lincolnville, a member of the Northport Select Board, and serves on the board of Waldo County Woodshed.

Other committee members include Brenda Harrington of Waldo, Polly Shyka of Freedom, Matt Curtis and Mary Leaming, both of Unity, and Chip Curry, Kevin Johnson and Zach Schmesser, all of Belfast.

In 2022, the Waldo County Fund awarded five grants totaling $44,900.
