1% for Maine
focuses on supporting the next generation of Mainers, Maine’s youth,
helping to give them the greatest chance at creating a more wonderful world. Selling homes in the community affords us the privilege of giving back to the communities that we live and work in.
On a quarterly basis the Portside Foundation and participating Portside agents give 1% of top line revenue to local nonprofits supporting systemic Maine problems. These issues include: education, generational poverty + affordable housing, substance abuse, limited access to medical care, and food insecurity.
How it works:
- A dedicated group of Portside 1% for Maine® board members work in tandem with Maine Community Foundation to unanimously select grants that are in alignment with our quarterly initiatives.
- When reviewing grants, we look for nonprofits that align completely with our mission as 1% for Maine®.
- We also are looking to ensure that the grants emphasize diversity and inclusivity and are providing a sustainable solution to one of the many challenges facing Maine’s youth.
