Harold Alfond College Challenge


Harold Alfond's dream of helping every child in Maine pay for college became a reality in December 2007 with the announcement of the Harold Alfond College Challenge program.

Founded by Mr. Alfond, the Harold Alfond Foundation will provide a $500 scholarship gift to be invested in a NextGen College Investing Plan® account for each newborn Maine resident.

MaineGeneral Medical Center is proud to work with the Finance Authority of Maine (FAME) and the Harold Alfond Foundation in making this program available to Maine newborns and their families.
