The Sugarloaf Region Charitable Trust is a private, nonprofit trust, dedicated to improving the quality of life for the communities that make up the Sugarloaf area. The trust provides financial assistance to organizations with nonprofit, tax-exempt status.

The Trust was established in early 1984, when the employees of Sugarloaf Mountain Corporation began contributing on a volunteer basis to the Trust through a payroll deduction program. These contributions were, and continue to be, matched by Sugarloaf Mountain Corporation. Tax-deductible contributions to the Sugarloaf Region Charitable Trust are presently being accepted from the entire Sugarloaf community.

Requests for the spring distribution of funds should be received by April 15, 2018. Mail to: Secretary, Sugarloaf Region Charitable Trust 5092 Access Road, Carrabassett Valley, ME 04947-9799.
