UMaine Foundation announces $100,000 Maine Day of Giving gift

University of Maine Foundation President Jeffery Mills announced a $100,000 gift to kick off the annual Maine Day of Giving event led by the Foundation. Donors Joe and Sue Cyr of Old Town have provided $50,000 to name a biomedical engineering prep lab in the Ferland Engineering Education and Design Center, $40,000 to support the MaineMBA program and up to $10,000 as a Maine Day of Giving matching challenge to support gifts to the Collins Center for the Arts. 

“Over the course of our lives, we have had the opportunity to observe the countless services, contributions and good deeds made by the University of Maine Foundation to the citizens, students and local community, and Maine as a whole,” said the Cyrs. “We believe these actions should be recognized, rewarded and encouraged.”
