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.




"At the John T. Gorman Foundation, we want to help improve the lives of Maine’s most disadvantaged people. We are working with partners, grantees, business and government officials to bring the best ideas, practices and opportunities to the table. And good things are happening."
