Maine Women's Fund

Investing in the power of women and girls since 1989

Maine Women's Fund

The Maine Women's Fund is a public foundation that makes bold investments that transform the lives of Maine women and girls.

We're Investing in Change and Supporting Greater Collaboration Through Our 2022 Annual Grants Program!

We Build. We want to support collaboration among the organizations that have been at the forefront of the work to transform the lives of women and girls across Maine the last 5 years. 

Our community's collective energy is focused on meeting dire needs across Maine while making the pivotal, underlying systems and social change needed to create greater gender equity, especially for Black, Indigenous, and Women and Girls of Color. We remain committed to leadership grantmaking that supports organizations led by and for Black, Indigenous, and Women and Girls of Color as they continue to lead the structural change required for a more prosperous future for all of us. 
We Invest. We will be evolving and streamlining our grantmaking program in 2022 to support this collective strengthening work.
We Connect. More information to come this winter!
