Finding the Right Funding Source
"Start Local – then expand"

 Funding sources can be grouped into the following categories:

  • Local Foundations
  • Corporate Giving Programs (local)
  • State of Maine Foundations
  • State Government
  • Federal Government

Local Foundations

Windham Education Foundation  -  The mission of WEF is to "expand and enrich all aspects of the educational experience for Windham Students through fundraising, individual & corporate gifts, and responsible management." If you are a public, private or home schooled student in the Town of Windham, you are eligible to benefit from The Windham Education Foundation. While funding scholarships will be a major goal, other grants such as those supporting teacher initiatives, the classroom, technology, and the arts, are all examples of grants that could be funded.
