Mission and Vision

Maine Initiatives, a fund for change, cultivates social, economic, and environmental justice through grants and other support to grassroots organizations in Maine communities.

We believe that change happens at the intersection of individual and collective action.

We believe that justice and equity are the public expressions of our most essential values.

We believe that all members of our community possess a unique endowment of resources and assets for justice and equity in our community: knowledge, skills, abilities, experience, expertise, wisdom, voice, values, relationships, time, and resources.

Our vision is one of potential and of action.

We see potential:

  • In individuals to bring about positive change.
  • In communities to embody greater social, economic, and environmental justice.
  • In Maine to be a national leader in advancing justice and equity.

We are building a movement of individuals acting independently and collectively as resources for justice and equity in our community. And we are stronger together.
