In 2005, the University of Maine Board of Trustees approved the University of Maine’s request to move forward with its most ambitious philanthropic endeavor to date. Campaign Maine is a six-year comprehensive campaign with a minimum private support goal of $150 million to fund the strategic priorities of the University. These include increasing scholarship aid for Maine students, enhancing the endowment for faculty professorships and chairs, establishing endowed excellence funds and restoring legacy buildings and learning environments.
All gifts and pledges received by the University between July 1, 2005 and June 30, 2011 through any of its fundraising partners will count as part of the campaign.
Potential donors are encouraged to work with their advisors and University resources to guarantee that their philanthropic priorities help advance UMaine’s educational mission.
