UMaine Alfond Challenge

Site Navigation:


Harold Alfond was a loyal fan and generous benefactor of the UMaine Black Bears until his death in 2007.   Mr. Alfond had a special passion for football, and was a frequent visitor to the sky box in the arena that bears his name.   The Harold Alfond ® Foundation continues to carry out Mr. Alfond’s philanthropic legacy, and has again made a generous challenge grant to benefit the University of Maine’s football program.

The  Harold Alfond Foundation will match gifts to UMaine football on a 1:1 basis up to a total of $250,000 if specific terms and conditions are met.  We are counting on generous alumni and friends to help us meet this challenge.  Your gift can help us meet a variety of needs, including expenses related to recruitment, team travel, and equipment.

This is the sixth year that the Foundation has made this challenge to UMaine; we are proud to partner with the Harold Alfond Foundation to make a difference for our football program, our university, and our state!
