    The Maine Women's Fund is conducting a statewide needs assessment to inform its grantmaking. We are engaging community members who are interested and involved in the issues that the Fund seeks to address through grantmaking. Economic security is the priority of the Fund's mission. We know that when women and girls thrive, communities prosper. We also know that women and girls have a better chance of thriving when they have access to education, healthcare benefits, training, employment and leadership opportunities that enable them to be financially secure. We would love to have your participation to help us provide an "on the ground" perspective of what challenges women and girls face in our state and your region when it comes to economic security. Volunteer groups in seven regions of the state are meeting to review data provided by the Fund on various issues affecting women and girls. The goal of each meeting is to articulate to the Fund what are found to be the regional priority issues of need for women and girls.


    Find the meeting closest to you. RSVP the contact listed for that meeting and attend! Free and open to the public.
