2023 Tolhurst Grant Program Applications now being accepted.
In 2021, Gun Owners of Maine launched the Tolhurst Grant Program.
Named to honor the work and legacy of our late President (Todd Tolhurst), these grants were awarded to individuals and organizations that offer hands-on firearm instruction. The funds were for the purpose of providing free or reduced-cost training to new and inexperienced gun owners in Maine.
We are happy to announce that we are offering the grants again in 2023. Up to ten grants of $500 each (one per training entity) will be awarded.
Grant applications will be accepted from 01/16/2023 through 04/01/2023. Applications must be received by 04/01/2023 to be considered. Terms and conditions are outlined in the grant application.
Questions can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
