Post-Election Letter to Our Friends
The election season is over, and the results have left many feeling uncertain and fearful. We, the board and staff of the Maine Women's Fund, are ready to move forward and work with you, our grantees, and our community partners to champion Maine's women and girls. We challenge the status quo so that every woman and girl has equal opportunity, financial security, personal safety, and the confidence to step into her life and thrive.
We cannot know what the next four years will bring. What we do know is that when women and girls thrive, communities prosper. We know that advancing gender equity is essential in achieving positive change in the lives of women and girls -- and all people. We know that the power of collective philanthropy can create real change. We know that our effort in achieving these goals is more important and relevant than ever.
We believe in the power of women's leadership to forge the way forward. This winter, in addition to our grantmaking, the Fund will embark on a strategic effort targeted at the power of women's leadership. We will expand our investment in this area, partnering with our grantees to deepen and broaden their work and assess its impact on Maine communities.
We are ready to get to work -- join us!
The Maine Women's Fund
