Maine Women’s Giving Tree

Founded in 2009, The Maine Women’s Giving Tree is a Donor Advised Fund of the Maine Community Foundation. We believe that by pooling our dollars and together deciding how to distribute those dollars, we make a greater impact in our communities than we could as individual donors. Since 2012 we have awarded nearly $300,000 in grants to outstanding community organizations and have grown to include 75 members. Here’s an overview of Maine Women’s Giving Tree’s work over the past ten years: 10 Anniversary Celebration

Thank you, David Treadwell and The Press Herald, for helping us reach others: David Treadwell: The Maine Women’s Giving Tree builds communities to serve the community

Treasurer Diane Field thanked them for their dedicated work ranging from diapers for babies to nutritious meals for the elderly. The awards totaled $50,000.
