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 Maine Community Foundation manages the Cumberland County Fund, and local leaders, knowledgeable about their communities, help review grant applications and distribute funding.
