MaineShare gives you an easy way to donate to over 40 statewide organizations working every- day to make Maine a better place to live. Through payroll giving contributions and direct gifts, our donors help these organizations achieve good health, environmental protection, safe communities, economic opportunity, human rights, animal welfare, peace, and much more. Your year-round giving at work provides these groups with a steady flow of dollars to keep important programs going.
MaineShare’s mission is to provide significant support to organizations doing progressive social justice and root cause work in Maine and to raise public awareness of their work.
As an organization, MaineShare values integrity/ethics/fairness/truth, compassion, justice, inclusiveness, commitment, community, stewardship, respect, diversity, and fostering tolerance. These values correspond to how we do our work everyday, and how our members do their work.
MaineShare respects the donor. All decisions about how to designate funds are made by the donor.
Member groups work on prevention. They work to provide solutions to environmental and human problems facing Maine.
MaineShare is efficient. We maintain a small office in Augusta with just two employees and a contract bookkeeper. Our member groups help keep our administrative costs low through contributing volunteer work hours. Each member group contributes to the running of MaineShare, helping with volunteer tasks, serving on committees, or providing needed office help. This system enables us to have a small staff and keep our costs down.
