UPDATE: July 1, 2014
Due to a great response to this program, matching funds are almost completely allocated. Please contact us very soon if you would like to participate.
In celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the University of Maine Foundation, the Board of Directors announced a 25% matching gift program to encourage gifts to existing Foundation endowment funds and the creation of new endowments.
The Foundation will match a minimum gift of $8,000 with $2,000 for an endowed fund. The program extends to a maximum match of $20,000 for an $80,000 gift. Commitments may be pledged over four years (2014-2017) and all gifts must be received by December 31, 2017 to qualify for the match.
The matching gift offer will be in effect until December 31, 2014, but matching funds are limited, so the program may end earlier if all match funding has been allocated. The 80th Anniversary Endowment Matching Gift form is available on our website. Please consider taking advantage of this offer by contacting the Foundation today.
