For children from birth through Sixth Grade

Strong Foundations wants all Maine’s children to begin life with good educational opportunities and plenty of hope. MaineSpark can connect children to their futures through programs like the Harold Alfond College Challenge, which gives every Maine baby a $500 start toward higher education costs, and Educare, a state-of-the-art early learning facility for low-income children in Central Maine.
