Three Ways to Give

When you give through the Maine Community Foundation, you join thousands of other dedicated individuals who are taking action to strengthen Maine. Our in-depth knowledge and expertise will help you transform your passion for giving back into powerful, meaningful change. There are a number of ways you can give:

Give Now

Name Your Passion: Create a Fund

  • Thinking about starting a family or corporate foundation? A donor-advised fund, named or anonymous, may be a tax-advantaged and convenient alternative. A scholarship, a fund to support a favorite organization, or a particular cause - there are many ways to partner with the community foundation to fulfill your passions through philanthropy.

Lead with Us: Donate to a Fund

  • Strengthen local communities by supporting the community foundation's county and regional funds or partner with us by supporting statewide discretionary funds such as our Critical Issues Fund or Invest in Maine Fund.

Give Later

Give to the Future: Make a Planned Gift

  • Your legacy can be shared to support the causes you care about now, while providing financial and estate savings.
