Grants to Green
Maine Discovery Museum recently received a grant from Grants to Green Maine, a partnership between the Maine Development Foundation’s Maine Downtown Center, Efficiency Maine, and the Maine Community Foundation to provide an energy efficiency audit of the Museum.

Grants to Green Maine provides environmentally focused knowledge and funding to strengthen nonprofits located in historic buildings in downtowns in Maine. 

We hope to use this grant to discover ways to make MDM more efficient and environmentally friendly.
