Portside Foundation

Giving Back

Portside Foundation

We believe that if we care about our neighbors, the difference we make collectively will be sustainable and life changing for our fellow Mainers.

The Portside Foundation 501(c)(3) is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Maine’s communities by supporting humanitarian, environmental and health-and-youth assistance programs. The Foundation organizes and hosts multiple fundraising events and awareness campaigns on behalf of local nonprofits throughout the year. These thoughtful events generate income through corporate sponsorships, ticket sales, auctions and direct donations. The proceeds from these events are used to support local nonprofits working to improve the lives of those in our communities.

Since the Foundation’s inception, we have raised enough capital to donate over $600,000 through our Portside Gives Back events, 1% for Back to Maine and donation drives for cancer causes, affordable housing, youth wellness and wildlife conservation programs in Maine.

You can visit our Events page to see what we have planned for this year!
