Community First Fund

Supporting Community Betterment and Crisis Recovery Efforts

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity

that will take place on May 5, 2020

as an emergency response to the unprecedented need

caused by COVID-19.

United Way of Mid-Maine (UWMM) and our partner agencies are working hard to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic to meet the short-term needs of those impacted, as well as the long-term needs that have yet to be seen.
Organizations that serve populations in need every day are finding themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for those services. We recognize this and, with the generous support of Kennebec Savings Bank, have established the Community First Fund. While our current efforts will be focused on COVID-19 relief, this Fund will be available year-round.
