About FairPoint Connected Communities

FairPoint Communications is committed to connecting the people, businesses and communities of Maine. Launched in May 2017, FairPoint Connected Communities is a new initiative to celebrate FairPoint’s commitment to ‘connecting Maine communities’ and to honor Maine non-profit organizations that serve those communities.

FairPoint invited all Maine-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations to apply, and an astounding 156 organizations submitted applications.

FairPoint is excited to announce that Area Interfaith Outreach (AIO) of Rockland; Grahamtastic Connection of Springvale; and Sunrise Opportunities of Machias will each receive a $16,000 grant and a technology package customized to help advance its charitable mission.
