Our Grant Recipients

Maine Cancer Foundation is proud to be serving the people of Maine in the fight against cancer.

Several times a year we issue a "Request for Proposals" or RFP in one or more service areas that support cancer screening, prevention, research or patient services. Volunteer review committees, drawn from experts in each discipline, review and score the proposals we receive. Finally, our Board of Directors approves the funding and the grants are issued.

We periodically review and communicate with our grant recipients to better understand what the people of Maine need, and how to improve our fight against cancer.
