Carlisle Academy is incorporated in the State of Maine as an L3C, which is a “low-profit limited liability company”. Under IRS guidelines, this means the entity is a social enterprise which puts purpose before profit. While an L3C has a social mission at its core, donors still need to go through a 501(c)(3) to give a tax-deductible donation for charitable and educational activities. Due to the nature of our work and the desire to keep our programs affordable and accessible, our charitable fund, Friends of Carlisle Academy, was set up with a non-profit fiscal sponsor in order to receive tax-deductible gifts to extend these charitable benefits to more people and maintain Carlisle Academy as a valuable community resource.

If you would like to learn more about how you can give to this fund, please see Friends of Carlisle Academy.

  • Those who are immunocompromised should continue to use a mask at their discretion.
  • Participants should not attend programs if they feel sick or are symptomatic. If any individual tests positive for COVID-19, they must follow the CDC guidelines for recovery time and return to activities.
  • We will continue to routinely clean and disinfect all common areas. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the setting, as well as two designated sinks for handwashing (by office and lower tack room).
