GCE has a goal of raising $500,000, yielding about $20,000 in funds each year that we can grant locally. Think about what that could mean; classroom enrichment, a summer concert series, open space conservation, new sports equipment for local clubs …the possibilities are endless!Donate electronically today via PayPal or send a check directly to Gray Community Endowment at:

What Can be Donated?

What Happens to Donations?
The endowment assets are managed by the Maine Community Foundation (MCF), a statewide public charity. MCF invests the money for GCE. On an annual basis, MCF reports to us on the growth of the assets and the interest we have earned that can be used for local grantmaking. The GCE Board decides how to use the funds through an annual application process.Go to the Maine Community Foundation website to read about the Maine Giving Challenge.
