BRUNSWICK — The Fund Committee of the Alfred M. Senter Fund is soliciting applications from public charities involved in promoting the cultural, educational, environmental well being and general health and welfare of residents of Brunswick, Topsham, Durham, Harpswell, West Bath, Lisbon and Bath.

The deadline is Oct. 31.

The fund especially seeks to support charities for which small grants will make a significant difference. The Fund does not normally award grants supporting annual operating budgets or to add to the endowment of other nonprofit organizations, according to a news release.

To date, grants totaling more than $1.97 million have been awarded.

Applications should be submitted by mail with an original and five copies. Forms may be obtained by contacting Senter Place Management Office in Brunswick at 207-725-6610, by fax at 725-6612, by email at or online at

Alfred Senter owned the former Senter’s Department Store on Maine Street in Brunswick and the Greenery Restaurant there. The property is now Senter Place occupied by businesses offering services to the public. The net income from Senter Place contributes to the funds in the Alfred M. Senter Fund.
