25 years of investing in the power of women and the dreams of girls.

About Us

In June of 1988, a visionary group of women gathered to create what eventually became the Maine Women’s Fund. These women were convinced that they could make a significant difference in the lives of Maine women and girls through philanthropy.

The mission of the Maine Women’s Fund is to transform the lives of Maine women and girls through strategic grantmaking, community engagement and support to nonprofit organizations dedicated to social change. The Fund’s vision is a just and caring society in which Maine women and girls thrive so communities prosper.
