Founded in 1995, the Maine Philanthropy Center is a regional association of grantmakers - small and large private foundations, community foundations, public foundations, corporate giving programs, family foundations and philanthropic individuals - who share a commitment to increasing the vitality and visibility of Maine’s philanthropy community. MPC carries out its mission through a range of programs and services.
In addition, MPC:
- Is a member of the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, a national network committed to promoting effectiveness and operating standards in the practice of philanthropy.
- Serves as a Cooperating Collection of The Foundation Center, an independent national service that is the authoritative source of information on foundation and corporate giving.
- Works closely with local organizations to provide joint programming and leverage resources.
The Maine Philanthropy Center is a 501(c)(3) organization serving foundations and other grantmakers. We do not make grants. Those interested in a statewide organization serving nonprofits may wish to contact the Maine Association of Nonprofits (207) 871-1885.
