Maine Philanthropy Center

Building Connections for Maine Grantmakers

Grantmaker Programs

MPC programs are designed to help grantmakers learn and develop expertise. MPC provides programs and offers workshops to share the skills needed for foundations and giving programs to be meaningful and effective. If you have any idea for a program, please let us know.

MPC grantmaker programs are designed specifically for grantmakers, foundation staff, trustees and donor advisors.
