About this funder:
Since its founding in 1997, Horizon Foundation has funded non-profit organizations that meet the mission goals in places where our trustees live and work. Grant funding concentrates on building organizational and community-wide effectiveness, developing opportunities, raising aspirations, and generally making a positive and lasting difference.
Horizon Foundation supports non-profit organizations that aspire to create and maintain sustainable, vibrant and resilient communities by:
- Enabling children and adults to lead their communities in creative, healthy and thoughtful ways;
- Educating citizens to be good stewards of the environment;
- Conserving land and water resources;
- Encouraging service to others;
- Promoting visual arts and music, and;
- Teaching appreciation of and preserving historic assets.
Outside of Maine
Outside of Maine, Horizon is particularly focused on identifying and supporting organizations that:
- Encourage learning in the classroom and beyond;
- Help to build self-esteem;
- Motivate individuals to reach for higher levels of educational proficiency and competency, and;
- Strive to increase the number of safe places for children to learn, share, and ultimately become stronger leaders for the future.
Horizon generally will make grants in the $5,000 to $20,000 range, with an average grant size of about $12,500. While many grants will be for onetime projects, multi-year support will be considered. The Foundation will consider proposals for both challenge or matching grants, and encourages collaborative efforts with other grant makers.
