Unity Foundation gets students to jump for JOY - - Belfast - Waldo - The Republican Journal: "Last year, the JOY program donated $61,000 across Maine and JMG students contributed more than 19,000 volunteer hours. Recipients ranged from small, local organizations such as Friends of the Lewiston Public Library to larger programs such as Make-A-Wish Foundation that works statewide. Students at several schools chose to augment the grant funding from the JOY program with their own funds raised from special events.
Organizations interested in applying for JOY funding should contact their local JMG school program for applications and guidelines. This year, students will send out their RFPs to coincide with National Philanthropy Day, celebrated both nationally and in Maine by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of Northern New England at an awards dinner at the Portland Marriott, Sable Oaks, Thursday, Nov. 4."
