MCHT's Next Wave

We’re Mainers in our 20s, 30s, and 40s on a mission to keep the coast Maine. We do that by providing crucial financial support to Maine Coast Heritage Trust and being ambassadors for the coast.

Here’s what we’re about:

  • Sharing our love for the Maine coast
  • Seeking deeper knowledge and understanding about the coast and its communities
  • Welcoming diverse perspectives
  • Addressing environmental threats close to home
  • And giving back to the place that’s given us so much


Here’s what you get when you make a gift and join:

  • A new group of friends that’s passionate about an open, healthy, working Maine coast
  • A special guide to MCHT preserves with tips from field staff – plus a nifty Keep the Coast Maine sticker!
  • Advanced notice and discounts on fun and innovative events for you and a guest
    (Did you hear about the clambake on the Goslings with Maine Beer Company and Big Tree Hospitality? It was epic! Check out the photos.)
  • Insider updates on new places conserved, initiatives to address climate change, and more
  • Recognition in MCHT materials
  • And the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ll always have access to the coast you love


An annual donation of $200 (that’s $16.67 per month) makes you a member of MCHT’s Next Wave. With an annual donation of $500 (that’s $41.67 per month) you can be a part of MCHT’s Next Wave Advisory Council and join us for quarterly meetings to help shape MCHT’s future and relevance to the next generation
