About Employee Giving
The University of Maine Employee Giving Campaign is part of the UMaine Annual Fund and includes all annual gifts from University of Maine (FTE), University of Maine Foundation, University of Maine Alumni Association, University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation, Maine 4-H Foundation employees, retirees, and their family members.
As a prequel to the annual giving day we are encouraging employees to participate in the annual Employee Giving Campaign during the month of April and culminating with Maine Day of Giving.
FY19 Employee Giving = $2,442,670
This amount included 1,815 gifts and pledges from 613 donors.
458 Loyal M Society members
169 President’s Club members
98 Stillwater Society members
58 Charles F. Allen Legacy Society members
25 Triple Crown donors
Over $10,000,000,000 in lifetime giving!
Many current and retired employees take their dedication even further by making philanthropic contributions to UMaine.
Recognition of Employee Donors
All donors will receive a special pin designating them as an employee donor. Most importantly, donors will know that they have made a difference in the lives of others as part of the University of Maine family.
Many donors choose to remain anonymous; their gifts are not publicized in any way.
What to support
Honorary & Memorial gifts
Every Gift Matters
Alumni, private foundations and other donors consider the (giving) participation rate of UMaine employees when making their gifts and grants.
How to Give
Current and retired employees alike may wish to consider the tax benefits of making a gift through an IRA distribution.
The United Way Campaign: Important but Different
UMaine Black Bear License Plate
Over $1 million dollars has been raised for UMaine scholarships through fees collected by the State of Maine when people purchase a Black Bear license plate. The University of Maine Foundation directs a voucher program which pays for the first year of a new plate for UMaine (and partner) employees and incoming new students from Maine. Contact the UMaine Foundation for more information.
