Today, businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals, service organizations and community leaders all have a role to play in the future success of this program and the state.

Thank you for all that you do to

help the Alfond Scholarship Foundation support and engage with Alfond Grant recipients and their families. Join us in giving Maine children a head start on a bright future.
