MAINE — The Maine Community Foundation seeks proposals to its Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund for projects and organizations that promote traditional handcrafts in Maine.

An anonymous donor established the Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund in 2007. Grant funding supports fiber arts, ceramics, basketry, jewelry, glass arts, woodwork, leather, metal crafts and more. It also includes traditional Native American handcrafts.

Grants are available for new or expanding projects and capacity-building activities. Online applications are available through the Maine Community Foundation at mainecf.org. The application deadline is June 1, 2019. Only 501(c)3 organizations are eligible to apply.

For more information, visit the foundation’s website, mainecf.org; or contact Leslie Goode by email at lgoode@mainecf.org, or by phone at 412-2002.

Headquartered in Ellsworth, with additional personnel in Portland, Dover-Foxcroft, and Mars Hill, the Maine Community Foundation works with donors and other partners to improve the quality of life for all Maine people.
