About the Foundation



To mobilize, engage and nurture broad investment from our diverse community to enhance the programs, equipment and facilities of Eastern Maine Community College.

Eastern Maine Community College Foundation supports students and academics provided at Eastern Maine Community College – ranked as one of the fastest growing community colleges in the country.

Through our generous and forward thinking donors, the Foundation is able to invest in the latest technology, equipment and improvements leading to student success leading up to graduation and ultimately the economic stability of this region. We are governed by an energetic volunteer board of directors who guide our activities and offer their expert advice. Each project that we embark upon always has volunteer input and guidance.

Our Board and staff members are working hard to ensure the viability of our current programs, as well as developing new and innovative ways to raise funds, awareness and investment for our college – for today and the future.
