What's New

ASF has recently launched an Alfond Grant Ambassador Program. Alfond Grant Ambassadors engage in outreach within their own communities, share information about the Alfond Grant, show families how to do things like check their grant value, verify contact information, and encouraging families to save for education after high school.

Alfond Grant Ambassadors receive training and technical support from ASF and are compensated for their time.

If you would like additional information about the Alfond Grant Ambassadors Program, please reach out to us at [email protected].

Outdoor Activities for Late Winter Fun!


Even though the first day of spring will soon be within sight, kids from across Maine are taking advantage of everything the last few weeks of winter have to offer – from skiing to sledding to snowball fights. Fresh air and outdoor activities are important for kids’ health, wellbeing, and development – not only does getting outdoors relieve stress (important in these pandemic times), but playing outside can nurture kids’ imaginations and even support their immune systems. But sometimes getting them outdoors is easier said than done. If you’re looking for some easy and fun outdoor activities, we’re sharing some favorites below. And don’t forget, when it’s time to come indoors and warm up, these 5 fun snow day craft projects will keep your kiddos entertained!
