The President’s Circle
Donors giving generously for an open, healthy, working, and beautiful Maine coast.
To recognize and thank donors giving $1,000 or more, Maine Coast Heritage Trust created The President’s Circle, a special giving circle.
Through their generous and consistent support, TPC members are critical to moving MCHT’s mission forward and making a meaningful difference, year after year.
This philanthropic group of individuals has a profound impact on our work to protect Maine’s plants and animals, mitigate climate change impacts, create more access to land and water, serve coastal communities, and support and strengthen Maine’s conservation community,” says MCHT president and CEO Kate Stookey. “It’s my pleasure to get to know and learn from many TPC donors and share news about the good work they’re making possible for the Maine coast.”
To say thank you and to stay connected, this group receives regular communications from MCHT’s president and CEO Kate Stookey and invitations to unique events up and down the coast.
The President’s Circle members receive:
- Special updates about the work you’re making possible
- Invitations to unique events for TPC members
All gifts to MCHT, including Aldermere Farm, in support of the Annual Fund; capital gifts for land protection, stewardship and community well-being; all received planned gifts; corporate and foundation grants; and gifts of land are included in The President’s Circle in the year in which they are received. Contributions can come in the form of cash, securities or gifts-in-kind.
Bill and Keefer Irwin of Steuben, ME, reflect on their connection to Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Long Point Preserve in Machiasport.
Long Point was conserved in 2013 and is now open to the public—forever.
"We are so fortunate, in these times of uncertainty, to still find a place that offers healing and solace. This special place was in existence thousands upon thousands of years ago, another culture lived their lives here, existing on the land - their signs still in place to tell their stories…. This is where we find ourselves today with magic all around us.
