Dear Friends of The River Fund Maine,

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Noah Tanguay-Collins as the new Executive Director of The River Fund Maine, effective immediately, November 9, 2020. Following a nationwide candidate search and a narrowing down to several highly qualified candidates by the Executive Director Search Committee, we learned of Noah’s interest in talking deeply with the committee about his taking the role. Since Noah has been with The River Fund Maine since its inception, we are extremely fortunate to have selected him, a new Executive Director who is so knowledgeable about the organization.

Noah is well known within the Sunday River and greater Bethel communities and has a keen sense about knitting together the local, second homeowner and visitor populations. A regular host of OutsideTV’s “Wake Up Sunday River!”, Tanguay-Collins has worked at Sunday River Resort since 2016 in increasingly dynamic positions, most recently in the management and growth of “The River’s” wedding business. When several years ago, The River Fund Maine developed from the former Sunday River Community Fund, Tanguay-Collins facilitated its vision, mission, and core tenets along with a talented team of devoted and soon-to-be-appointed directors. 

Armed with an inspiring “can do” attitude and a great sense of humor, Noah has worked endless hours to help build a substantial foundation for The River Fund Maine: an efficient management cadence, an outstanding Board, a robust portfolio of events, a strategic donorship and endowment plan, and a truly impactful set of programs.

“Whether you live, recreate, or occasionally visit the greater Sunday River community, we have many ways for you to get involved with our mission, which is all about providing resources to our community’s youth through education and recreation. We have a continuously evolving slate of fun events benefitting a growing portfolio of educational programs and scholarships, diverse donor opportunities, and dedication to following our mantra, “Have Fun. Do Good,” says Tanguay-Collins.
“Collaborating on The River Fund Maine’s creation and evolution has been so rewarding. This agile organization has established itself as a trusted community partner. Having the opportunity now to lead it is surreal. I couldn’t be more excited,” he says.

Thank you for your continued support, and please join me in welcoming Noah.
