I have always been driven to support Maine’s communities by giving back to humanitarian, environmental, and health-and-wellness non-profit programs.

I am active contributor to 1% Back to MAINE® which focuses on supporting the next generation of Mainers and Maine’s youth, by helping to give them the greatest chance at creating a more wonderful world. Selling homes in the community affords me the privilege of giving back to the communities that I live and work in.

On a quarterly basis the Portside Foundation and other 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% Back to 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% Back to 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
