Cumberland County Fund

Current and former members of the Cumberland County Committee include Eleanor Goldberg, Nasir Shir, Alison Harris, Nancy Spiegel, Quincy Hentzel, Clara Whitney, Sara Moppin, Brian Cushing, Kathy Smith, and Chip Newell. 

The Cumberland County Fund was established in 2005 with the support of several MaineCF donors. As a permanent endowment, the Cumberland County Fund provides ongoing grant support to nonprofits engaged in community building projects in the region. The purpose of the fund is to support organizations and projects that serve Cumberland County. The Cumberland County Committee reviews grant applications received through the Community Building grant program that serve Cumberland County. They make recommendations to fund those applications that meet the grant program criteria and that have the greatest potential for positive impact on the quality of life in Cumberland County.
