The Vision for Tomorrow comprehensive campaign is a $200 million fundraising drive for the University of Maine. The campaign — a collaboration between UMaine and the University of Maine Foundation — was publicly launched Oct. 13, 2017. Over $121 million has been raised.
“I am pleased to support the College of Education, where I earned my degree in 1961 and then went on to begin my teaching career. Utilizing the Vision for Tomorrow 1:3 matching gift program, my scholarship provides additional resources to help them prepare the next generation of educators.” Anne Collins ’61
A gift to the University of Maine Foundation from an anonymous donor has created the Vision for Tomorrow matching gift program that will leverage $4 million to $5 million in additional support for Maine students as part of the campaign.
“We take great pride in our tradition of helping undergraduate students afford an outstanding UMaine education,” says Dr. Jeffery N. Mills ’82, president and CEO of the University of Maine Foundation. “With these new 1:3 and 1:4 endowment matching initiatives, including the two scholarship programs, donors can make a tremendous difference. Over the long term, we can keep more of our best and brightest in Maine, where they can contribute to the state’s economy and quality of life.”
The alumnus who provided the generous estate gift was a World War II GI from western Maine who valued UMaine’s mission throughout his life.
