Maine Initiatives, a progressive community foundation, is a network of individuals supporting greater social, economic, and environmental justice in Maine through informed, intentional, and collective philanthropy.
Since 1993, we have made more than $3.7 million in grants to community-based organizations in Maine working to address our most pressing challenges.
As a public foundation, our most significant asset is the community. This means people and their financial resources. It also means their knowledge, skills, experience, values, and time.
We mobilize and leverage these resources: engaging, informing, and connecting our donors to fund and strengthen the organizations that are working to increase social, economic, and environmental justice in the state of Maine.
