Election Day is Almost Here!
To achieve our mission of improving the lives of Maine women and girls, we take action in three important ways: we give, we educate, and we connect. But on Election Day, our most critical act is to VOTE. 
We Connect: Join us for “Women Mean Business – Investing in Women at All Levels”
This year’s Women Mean Business event is just three weeks away!   Are you registered ? We look forward to hearing from our Keynote Speaker, Joe Keefe, President and CEO of Pax World Funds, and panelists. One key panelist, Speaker of the House Sara Gideon, will be with us right after the election. Her policy priorities to positively impact the lives of children and empower women and working families are why she ran for office. 
Thought Leadership: Vote
Next year is the 100 th  Anniversary of the 19 th  Amendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. Jim Crow laws in the South effectively denied voting rights to African American women (and men) until the passage of the Voting Rights Acts of 1965. However, since then, new forms of voter suppression have emerged in many states – methods which make it difficult if not impossible for some to exercise their right to vote. Luckily, in Maine we’ve been able to fight against such efforts.

This year, more women are on the ballots than ever before and this is our opportunity to move the needle and put more women in positions of power in Augusta and Washington, D.C. So, VOTE November 6th; every vote matters.  
We Give: Annual Appeal
T his year we have been able to fund 14 Annual Grants at $130,500 and five Swift Social Justice Grants at $7,200, and we may still fund more. With your help today, we will continue to support organizations that encourage our girls to become strong, confident women and amplify the voices of women working to make change happen. Become a champion of Maine’s women and girls. Now is the time to dig a little bit deeper and join the Maine Women’s Fund. Please donate today. 
On behalf of the staff and board of the Maine Women's Fund, thank you for investing in the power of women and girls!
