Workplace Giving

Offering workplace giving does not require a cash investment from your company.

Your ongoing work to support the Maine community as you provide your employees with choices for giving throughout the year shows that you value the health and welfare of your employees and neighbors. By offering the opportunity to support and participate in a shared vision for vital and vibrant communities in Maine, you are making a positive impact.

We also know that workplaces of all sizes benefit from building strong communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with you as we collectively steward a culture of social responsibility. Employees recognize an organizations’ commitment to causes that make their communities stronger and stay with organizations that provide choices in how they might help make Maine a great place to live and work.

MaineShare is honored and excited to be part of your campaign.

We look forward to providing you with the printed, online, and in-person support that you need to ensure your campaign is a success! In order to meet your needs, please take a few moments to:

  • Help meet community expectation and consumer demand for increased Corporate Social Responsibility.

When you invite MaineShare to your benefits fair, tabling, or presentation, you are encouraging your employees to think about how they can invest, sustainably, in the causes they care about.

Get Outside for a Better Maine
#Go4Maine – July to September

During the summer, and through September of this year, MaineShare challenges our supporters to start outdoor adventure teams as they support MaineShare!

This online challenge to enjoy Maine’s best time of year encourages people to build teams of friends, co-workers and/or family to meet for a swim, surf, sail, wheel, walk, hike, paddle or other fun outdoor activity as they raise a few dollars for MaineShare!  Contact us to ask for postcards and flyers for your organization today!

This is a terrific team-oriented activity and one which encourages a healthy engagement with friends and co-workers as well as a commitment to sustainable change in Maine!
