On September 9, John T. Gorman Foundation President Tony Cipollone and United Way of Greater Portland Senior Vice President of Community Impact Dan Coyne spoke to members of the Maine Philanthropy Center about Thrive2027. This collaborative effort among nearly 300 cross-sector partners in Cumberland County seeks to better align work in the community to achieve three goals by 2027: 1) Give kids a strong start, 2) Empower neighbors to thrive—not just survive; and 3) Help us all live longer & better.

The Foundation has been proud to participate in this initiative since its start in 2015 and to invest in several of its strategies. We believe in Thrive2027’s potential to have a meaningful impact on the area’s residents by strengthening the way we all work together. To find out more, go to:
