Investing in the power of women and girls

About Us

Our mission: The Maine Women's Fund makes bold investments that transform the lives of Maine women and girls.

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. Learn more about our beginnings here.

In July 2022, we transferred our assets to the Maine Community Foundation. Learn more.

Maine Community Foundation will further our mission. In their words, read about our connection and opportunities.
