Androscoggin Social Capital Award 2Congratulations to the YWCA of Central Maine, recipient of the Androscoggin County Fund’s Social Capital Award given this year in recognition of the Fund’s 15th year anniversary.

The Androscoggin County Fund was launched in 1999 with a matching gift from Androscoggin Savings Bank. Since that time, the Androscoggin County Committee has awarded more than $370,000 in grants. The committee is made up of local community leaders who partner with the foundation to build charitable resources to serve the region.

The Androscoggin County Committee prefers proposals that, among other factors, seek to build social capital by fostering community connections and engaging people in their communities. It is particularly interested in supporting projects incorporating the following:

  1. Building community connections, especially among diverse groups
  2. Broadening and diversifying leadership and involvement in communities, and assisting communities in developing processes that encourage rather than discourage civic involvement.
  3. Increasing trust, especially across lines of difference. Encouraging people to do more with others rather than just for others.

The folks in the picture are Androscoggin County Committee members: Chris Delamater, Kathy Durgin-Leighton (YWCA Executive Director), Anne Brown, Holly Lasagna, and Dale Morrell.
