Next Generation of Conservationists

Young Donors Making a Difference for the Maine Coast

Join the Next Gen of Conservationists

You can join the next generation of young conservationists passionate about keeping the Maine coast healthy, beautiful, and open to all. With fresh perspectives and deep connections to the coast, they’re charting the course for Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s future. 

Interested in making a $500 gift and joining this group of donors under 50? Your gift will go to building trails along the coast, opening islands to the public, keeping vulnerable ecosystems intact, and a whole lot more. You also get to know and spend time with others who care about coastal conservation at a series of fun events throughout the year.

With your gift you'll receive many perks, including:

  • Invites to exclusive events on the coast. From boat tours, preserve hikes, island clean-ups, BBQs, foodie events, and more—we're creating fun and innovative ways for you to experience the conservation you make possible.
  • Insider communications directly from MCHT’s president, Tim Glidden
  • A guide to the most spectacular MCHT preserves, newsletters, and other MCHT communications

Ready to step up?

$500 is the entry level to join this group. With your gift, you’ll receive all the above benefits as well as the peace of mind that you’re conserving this place you love so much.

Consider a monthly gift of $41.67—it’s an easy and convenient way to join!

For more information, please contact Nicole Connelly or at (207)607-4361.
