The Maine Cancer Foundation was established in 1976 by a group of concerned citizens motivated to do more for Maine in the fight against cancer. The foundation leads a statewide effort to foster and grow the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available to the people of Maine through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building.
To that end, MCF is accepting applications for its Projects to Reduce Tobacco Use in Maine program. One- or two-year grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded for projects that focus on tobacco cessation for adults, advocacy or policy projects related to tobacco use and/or second-hand smoke, and/or projects that address Maine populations disproportionately impacted by tobacco. The foundation encourages but does not require projects to show collaboration among Maine organizations.
To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit organizations based in Maine and be considered tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
