The Alfred M. Senter Fund, a private charitable trust, is authorized to make grants to any public charity which provides a service in Maine and which meets the requirements of the trust documents.

The fund was established by Senter, and it was his wish that public charities benefiting from this fund be involved in promoting the cultural, educational, environmental and general health and welfare of the inhabitants of Brunswick, Durham, Lisbon, Harpswell, Topsham, West Bath and Bath.

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.

The Fund Committee is soliciting requests for grants with a requirement that grant applications be submitted by mail with an original and five copies, and that they be received by Tuesday, Oct. 31. Application forms can be obtained by contacting Senter Place Management Office in Brunswick at 207-725-6610 or, or visit
