Donate now and help Maine families in need...

Our organization relies heavily on annual private donations to meet operating costs. In giving to The Maine Children’s Home, you help us to continue providing high-quality services and programs to Maine's most needy children and families. Your dollars can:

  • Ensure Maine children and youth in need have warm clothing to protect them during our harsh winters
  • Enable young mothers to provide basic needs to their infants such as diapers, formula and bottles
  • Give a pregnant or parenting teen the opportunity to earn their high school diploma and the guidance they need to become a responsible parent
  • Give the experience of summer camp to a disadvantaged child
  • Help make sure needy children throughout Maine have something under the tree on Christmas morning

Donations can be made:

  • Online
    When you donate online, we will not sell, trade or share your information with anyone else. Online donations to The Maine Children's Home are safe and secure.
