Birthday Cake

Eighty-two years ago some very forward thinking people created the University of Maine Foundation with a check for $1,000 from the Class of 1909. In this short 82 years, the Foundation endowment now exceeds $186M with the total UMaine endowment at $287M. Those totals do not include the millions of dollars provided annually as a result of those investments. June 9, 1934 was truly a transformational day for the University of Maine!
