Welcome to
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 more than $150,000 in grants to outstanding community organizations and have grown to include nearly 60 members.
