Major Giving

Maine Public established the Beacon Society to recognize the support of generous donors who provide annual gifts totaling $1,200 — that’s $100 per month — or more. These donors believe that Maine Public is an essential organization with statewide impact achieved through its public radio, television, and digital services, its educational outreach initiatives and its collaboration with other organizations and agencies.

"Public broadcasting offers an experience — information and stories from around the world, every

day. This is worth preserving, this is worth continually innovating, this is worth passing down."
— Phyllis Jalbert and Chandra Oppenheim
