There is exciting news if you would like to boost your retirement income and support the University of Maine Foundation. Effective July 1, 2022, charitable gift annuity rates will increase.
The University of Maine celebrated three of its top advocates at the Stillwater Society Dinner May 21. The annual event in Orono honors UMaine’s most generous philanthropists. Currently, there are 1,541 members in the society, including 270 new members inducted and 197 members who advanced in their membership level at the event.
Thanks to the generosity of John M. Nickerson ’59, for the 2022-2023 academic year, Nickerson scholarships are expected to cover the full cost of in-state tuition at the University of Maine for 22 students, with an additional 6 half-scholarships.
Throughout February 2023 we are celebrating Women in Sports month, an annual event made even more special this year as the nation joins in celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX. Since 1972, this amendment has prohibited discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities, including athletics, that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX played a large role in providing several opportunities for women, paving the way for all-americans, champions, record holders, and pioneers over the past 50 years at UMaine.
To honor the 50th anniversary of Title IX and celebrate our former female student-athletes and the future of women’s athletics at UMaine we invite you to make a gift to support your favorite team.

2022 Annual Report
The annual report theme is “Our Journey”.
As alumni and friends of the University of Maine, we have shared a similar journey from the time we crossed one of the bridges that led us to our first encounter with the University of Maine in Orono. Although our paths are all quite different, the journey has taken us to this place—one where we have a desire to give back and support the many things we love about the college of our hearts, always. This special place continues to have a hold on us. Generations of us have made a difference for those who have traveled those bridges behind us and generations will continue the journey after us.
