Maine Philanthropy Center

Building Connections for Maine Grantmakers

About Us

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 United Philanthropy Forum, 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 at (207) 871-1885.
