Our Priorities

Our Mission

The John T. Gorman Foundation advances ideas and opportunities that can improve the lives of disadvantaged people in Maine.

To achieve the greatest impact, the Foundation has a special interest in strengthening families and helping communities provide them with the supports and opportunities they need to thrive. This focus on strengthening families reflects our founder, Tom Gorman's recognition that his personal success and achievement were largely derived from the support provided to him by his family and community, as well as his desire to provide those less fortunate with opportunities to succeed.




"We are pleased to announce the John T. Gorman Fellowship, a new leadership program in Maine for nonprofit and public sector professionals. The application deadline is September 19, 2014."

You are invited to nominate yourself or someone else to be part of our first class.
