Megan Hannan

Executive Director

Megan recently joined the Maine Women’s Fund, ready to tackle the bold vision which will guide the Fund forward.  She has been an active feminist her whole life, working in non-profits and philanthropy to better lives – especially for women and girls - across Maine.  She previously served as the Executive Director of Frannie Peabody Center, an HIV agency; Director of Government Affairs for Planned Parenthood; and the Director of Public Issues and Communication for the American Cancer Society.

Megan earned her BA in Journalism and Political Science from Keene State College in New Hampshire. After living in several Maine towns from Portland to Presque Isle, she lives in Bath with her husband Douglas, from where they travel the state and planet looking for outdoor adventure.  They especially enjoy: kayaking, diving, biking, hiking, skiing and camping. She also practices yoga at home, on top of mountains, and in the studio.

Kimberly Crichton

Grants Director

Kimberly joined the staff of the Maine Women’s Fund as the Grants Director in 2017, having previously served as a contracted Grants Coordinator since 2013. She learned about the Maine Women’s Fund, and philanthropy, as a participant in the New Girls’ Network in 2002-2003. As a result of that experience, she became interested in philanthropy, and how funders and non-profits can best work together to achieve their missions and advance lasting change, and  she is thrilled to be a part of that change.  In 2012, after nine years designing, developing, and managing grant programs at the Maine Health Access Foundation, she founded her own business, Transform. LLC, focused on advancing social change.

Kimberly lives in Western ME and when she is not working, she spends her time outside, or in the studio, and on any number of grand adventures with her dog.  She is always inspired exploring the mountains and lakes around her home, visiting the urban wonders of Portland and Lewiston, exploring the sweet, hidden treasures in the southern tip of Maine, and traveling North to her hometown of Bangor and beyond.  She is so grateful for all the different Maine communities that have shaped and informed her life and her experiences.
