Patricia D. Klingenstein Grants Program


Named in honor of Patricia Klingenstein, who championed the program, the Sadie & Harry Davis Foundation awards grants ranging from $3,000 to $15,000 to organizations that focus on the health needs of Maine’s children, especially those from low-income families and under-resourced communities, or other marginalized populations that may have limited supports and resources.

We want to help the children of Maine, particularly those most in need. This program is a way we can do that.

Central Lincoln YMCA

After COVID-19 spread into Maine, we encouraged 2019 Small Grants Program recipients to redirect the remaining funds of their grants to help children and families address the devastating consequences of the pandemic. The Central Lincoln YMCA used the remaining funds from our grant for their Healthy Weight & Your Child program to support the Y’s pandemic response outreach efforts, including food distribution and helping community members access needed services during this crisis.
