Philanthropist.  (/phi-lan-thro-pist/), from the Greek philos (love of) and anthropos (humankind)


Be a philanthropist.

Maine Initiatives is a community of individuals advancing justice and equity in Maine through informed, intentional, and collective philanthropy.

Even so, many of us don’t think of ourselves as philanthropists. We are organizers, activists, advocates, leaders, connectors, seekers, fighters, teachers, and learners.

Philanthropy is, however—drawing on its roots in ancient Greek—“love of humanity.”

Your giving to Maine Initiatives—in any amount—is an act of love that is advancing justice and equity in our state.

Be a philanthropist. Give to Maine Initiatives.
