The University of Maine Foundation was created on June 9, 1934 when University of Maine President Harold Boardman called the first meeting to order.
The Class of 1909 has the distinction of making the first gift to the Foundation, presenting President Boardman, a member of the Class of 1895, with a check for $1,000 that night at the annual Alumni Banquet.
Since 1934, the Foundation has experienced tremendous growth, thanks to many loyal donors. The foresight and generosity of alumni and friends have had a dramatic impact on the University of Maine.
Today, the University of Maine Foundation is leading the University of Maine’s $200 million Vision for Tomorrow comprehensive campaign. As of February 2019, more than $170 million has been raised.
From a small annual fund gift to a multimillion dollar bequest or naming gift, it all makes a difference for the college of our hearts, always.
To create your philanthropic legacy through a gift to benefit the University of Maine, please contact the staff at the Foundation to become part of this transformational 85-year tradition.
