Big Brothers Big Sisters

Identifying needs. Supporting solutions.

Our mission is to energize Midcoast Maine nonprofit agencies
through finance and guidance, supporting a network of
resources stronger than any single organization.

Our areas of focus are food, housing, health & safety, and economic security.

Through a thorough application and review process, in 2017 UMC awarded grants totaling $500,000 to more than 50 agencies.

Individuals and businesses throughout the region give generously to support the vital work of clinics, daycare centers, food banks, soup kitchens, medical services, housing providers and many other organizations. UMC’s Board of Directors and Executive Director oversee our donor programs as well as our grant application and review process.

"It is an amazing opportunity to have a situation where two people can make a positive
difference in each other's lives – or maybe that's the definition of friendship."
