Foundation Support

Eastport Arts Center incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the State of Maine in 1990, five years after our founding group of artists first came together to establish a grassroots gallery in Eastport.

Since that time, we are grateful for the support of many visionary philanthropists who share our goals to develop and sustain creative, thriving communities in every corner of Maine.

The following foundations have awarded generous grants to Eastport Arts Center. We are deeply thankful for every dollar.
