The Maine Philanthropy Center is lucky to have a dedicated, engaged board. We like to lift up the amazing volunteer leaders who support and direct the Center's work.
Because MPC members work on every side of an issue - as funders, nonprofits, foundation trustees, and volunteers - MPC is uniquely positioned to make connections among our members and make Maine a better place to live, work, and play. MPC's Member Spotlights are our chance to raise awareness of the philanthropy work happening in Maine, highlight new or interesting initiatives, and celebrate and recognize the people that make up the Maine philanthropy community.
