Mascoma Bank Foundation
The Mascoma Bank Foundation provides capital funding to not-for-profit organizations within Mascoma Bank’s market area that will contribute to the long-term benefit of its communities. The Bank serves the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire from Keene to Lancaster; the I-89 corridor from Burlington to New London; and Portland, Maine.
Typical projects may include facility and infrastructure improvements, new construction, capital campaigns, and capital items outside normal operating budgets. The Foundation is especially interested in requests or projects that:
- Significantly impact the organization’s long-term future, thereby contributing to our long-term commitment to create positive change in our communities.
- Substantially increase the capacity, long-term viability, and resilience of the organization.
Applications will be accepted for amounts ranging from $5,000-$50,000. Most awards will be for $5,000-$25,000. Proposals will be considered two times per year. The spring cycle deadline for proposals is April 1 and for the fall cycle is October 1. Applications should be complete on submission. The Foundation will not consider applications from organizations that have received funding in the prior two calendar years.
