Why MMGM?

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” -Carl Sagan

Museum doors are finally open!  For the first time, the public can experience the depth and scope of the preeminent collections and research facilities that make this a world class museum.  However, building the museum was just the beginning, and as a 501(c)(3), MMGM relies on public support.

Commemorative naming opportunities are part of the museum’s “Preserving Maine’s Past – Inspiring Its Future” Capital Campaign and allow donors to link their gift to a museum program, exhibit or gallery. Individuals, Foundations, families, and businesses can be recognized in galleries and other museum spaces, with your name(s) or in honor of someone special.

Gift levels ranging from $15,000 to $500,000 will be recognized with commemorative naming opportunities, available as an outright gift or by a pledge payable over a period of up to five years.

Your major support will ensure MMGM can provide comprehensive education programs and research, campus expansion, and the development of a Lapidary Arts Studio and Archives Library.

Join us in this exciting adventure!  MMGM’s programs will engage people of all ages and inspire the next generation of STEM innovators, educators and researchers.  Your gift will have a tangible impact on MMGM’s mission and success and help us deliver unparalleled educational opportunities to Maine’s youth and beyond.

Please contact us.  Museum staff are always available to speak with donors about opportunities for meaningful recognition.
