Alfred M. Senter fund seeking grant applications from local communities by Oct. 31

BRUNSWICK — The Alfred M. Senter Fund — a private charitable trust authorized to make grants to any public charity providing a service in the state of Maine and meeting the requirements of the trust documents — is soliciting requests for grants with a requirement that applications be submitted by mail, with an original and five copies, and that they be received no later than Oct. 31 for this current calendar year.
The fund was established by Alfred Senter, the owner of the former Senter’s Department Store on Maine Street and of the Greenery Restaurant at that location. 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 non-profit organizations.
Application forms may be obtained by contacting Senter Place management office at 207-725-6610, fax at 207–6612, email at or by visiting ,a href=””>
