Summer Update
You make it all possible!
Dear Friends,
Thanks to your support in this unprecedented year, we have strategically expanded our investments and made pivotal change happen in communities across Maine.

Our results: More than $200,000 in grants distributed this year – the most we’ve ever given!
  • 2020 Annual Grants: In June we awarded annual grants to 16 nonprofits addressing the needs of Maine women and girls across the state. Watch our Grantee Reveal Party and meet the grantees!

  • Swift Social Justice Grants: Earlier this year we raised the maximum grant amount in this quick-turnaround program and have already funded five organizations where women and girls from marginalized communities are leading urgent change.

  • Safety First for Women Fund: We created this emergency fund in April in response to the pandemic and within two months raised and distributed funds to improve the safety of direct care workers and to support families experiencing domestic violence through 14 organizations providing direct services to survivors.

  • CA$H Maine: We are using our powerful network to help CA$H Maine empower low-income families to achieve long-term financial stability. Learn how you can volunteer with this program.

And the year is only half over! Please consider a gift to help us continue this transformational work. Click here to make a secure donation or mail a check to 74 Lunt Rd, Ste 100, Falmouth ME 04105.

With gratitude,
The Maine Women's Fund Board and Staff
