Community Requests

Thank you for your interest in Northern Light Inland Hospital. We are proud to be involved in our communities. We have several types of request forms. Please read through this information to choose the form that fits your type of request. Our goal is to be supportive of efforts that can improve the quality of life in the Greater Waterville area. Because we have limited funds and resources, we require a completed application to assess the opportunities that best match our mission and interests in the community. Thank you.

Request to support a health initiative

If your request is for funds to support a health initiative or community program that improves the health and wellness of local residents, you may consider applying for our annual Community Benefit Grant Program, which is open for applications in February. 

Through our Community Benefit Grant Program, we award grants to non-profit organizations with strategies that align with Inland’s mission and identified key health priorities. We give priority to health-related initiatives, programs or services serving vulnerable or under-served populations in the Greater Waterville area, and organizations that are working to make a measurable impact on health using evidence-informed strategies and partnerships.

Each year we have a formal application process to request community benefit grants. Applications are being accepted from February 4 to February 25, 2019. The deadline for consideration is February 25, 2019.
