More about the MainStreet Foundation.
Congratulations to the Preble Street Teen Center, the winner of our 2016 $25K for Kids grant!
Our mission is simple, focused, and essential. The MainStreet Foundation is Androscoggin Bank's $1,000,000 Foundation aimed at helping keep at-risk kids in Maine safe, healthy, active, happy, educated, and nourished. Four times a year we make grants (up to $5,000) to excellent non-profit agencies actively working in our communities to help kids thrive. These grants vary based on the need and typically exceed $50,000 per year.
$25k for Kids.
In 2011, Androscoggin Bank pledged to donate $100K to the MainStreet Foundation in honor of outgoing Bank President, Steven A. Closson. With this gift, MainStreet is able offer four $25K individual grants - one in each year starting in November of 2013. Steve continues his good works at the Bank by leading the MainStreet Foundation and actively working to promote the $25k for Kids awards to agencies taking the point in helping kids at risk.
