Making a last-minute donation in 2015? Easy! We compiled a list of 10+ Maine Maritime organizations donation pages

(Unfortunately, we could not list them all but this is a good starting point!)


Through meaningful exhibitions, educational programs, Native-led demonstrations and workshops, first-person storytelling and an Archaeology Field School, the Abbe offers a wide variety of learning opportunities. We encourage a more tolerant and culturally-aware society by inspiring visitors to think more deeply about the history and contemporary lives of individuals from other cultures. Contributions from our members and supporters allow us to continue this important work.

When you make a gift to the Abbe Museum, you directly affect our ability to deliver quality educational programs to schools across Maine, steward our collections, create opportunities for Wabanaki scholars and artists and build the exhibitions that inspire new learning about the Wabanaki Nations with every visit.




How you can support sustainable fisheries in Eastern Maine and beyond.

Healthy, sustainable fisheries are the lifeblood of the downeast Maine economy.  DEI has been working for the past 26 years with clammers, lobster fishers, scallopers, and others to enhance stocks through public aquaculture, to conduct applied research to better understand the important biological, ecological, and physical mechanisms that result in healthy fisheries, and to share our knowledge with fishers, fisheries managers, and with K-12 teachers and their students.




GMRI is a neutral, nonprofit organization that catalyzes solutions to the complex challenges of ocean stewardship and economic growth in the Gulf of Maine bioregion. Based in Portland, Maine, GMRI utilizes a dynamic fusion of science, education, and community to affect change from multiple directions while remaining committed to its core principles of objectivity and collaboration.




The Island Institute works to sustain Maine’s island and remote coastal communities, and exchanges ideas and experiences to further the sustainability of communities here and elsewhere. We envision that Maine’s year-round island communities will thrive and lead as examples of sustainability.

The issues we face threaten not just our fishing businesses, but also the survival of Maine's working coastal communities. Without the Maine fishermen and the communities they support, we lose an important part of our Maine identity.

To identify solutions to the most pressing problems of today and to preserve the fishing culture in Maine, we need your help. We are at an important juncture in the history of Maine's fishing industry, determining how that industry will endure for generations to come. Your financial support will help give a voice to Maine's small-boat fishermen and make that voice heard throughout New England and across the nation.




Along with partners including the State of Maine and the Downeast Coastal Conservancy , MCHT has helped protect dozens of miles of shorefront and numerous hiking trails along Maine's wild and spectacular Bold Coast - a rugged section of coastline between Cutler and Lubec in eastern-most Maine. MCHT owns and stewards more than 3,500 acres on the Bold Coast, including preserves at Boot Head, Bog Brook Cove, Western Head, and Hamilton Cove - all of which provide hiking trails through spruce forest and along cobble beaches and steep cliffs with breath-taking ocean views.

The Trust also helped assemble the protection of the region's largest coastal conservation holding, the 12,234-acre Cutler Coast Unit owned by the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, thanks to funding from the Land for Maine's Future Program.

MCHT continues to work with private landowners and local communities along this stretch of coastline to conserve its unique natural and cultural values.




The Maine Island Trail is a water trail spanning over 200 islands and coastal sites along the 375 miles of the coast of Maine. One third of trail sites are public, and two thirds are owned by private organizations and individuals who trust us to care for their lands and teach our members to Leave No Trace. More than just the first recreational water trail in America, the Maine Island Trail fosters a culture of grassroots user-stewardship for Maine's islands.

Membership dues cover only 32% of MITA’s total revenue. MITA relies on donations beyond memberships to care for the Maine coast. Your donation ensures that the islands are cared for today and into the future.




Maine’s First Ship (MFS) is a historically significant reconstruction project that we have leveraged into practical shipbuilding and ship operation programs for the education of students of all ages. As we build Virginia, our floating classroom, we are engaging students in annual summer shipbuilding courses that teach traditional skills. Programs include lofting and related math, carpentry, as well as ship preservation, operation and maintenance that will help prepare participants to succeed in real life employment. We teach the science of shipbuilding in a condensed historic context.

The mission of the Maine Lighthouse Museum is to educate the public regarding the longstanding traditions, heroism and progress of America's Lighthouse and Lifesaving services and the United States Coast Guard.

This will be accomplished through the conservation and interpretation of the nation's most significant collection of lighthouse and lifesaving artifacts.



Penobscot Marine Museum relies on the support of individuals and organizations to continue its services to the community. Your donation helps us present exhibits and events that challenge the intellect and capture the imagination; conserve and promote the maritime culture of the Penobscot region and Maine; and offer educational opportunities to our region’s young people. Please lend your support to an institution that gives so much to the region and to the protection of our maritime heritage.
