Other Ways to Support MPRC

At Maine People’s Resource Center – the sister organization of Maine People’s Alliance – we believe that we must stay the course across generations. Since 1984 MPRC and MPA have worked together to build a powerful movement that equips Maine people with resources and opportunities to lead progressive change. We want to be here to continue this work for another forty years and support every generation as they arrive to this movement. Your contributions can ensure their arrival is fully supported – no matter what and no matter when

“I am proud to be including MPRC in my will. I've been fed by MPRC, physically and spiritually, far in excess of what I will pledge upon my departure. MPRC and its leaders and volunteers give me much hope for the future of Maine and I look forward to helping MPRC for years to come.”

MPRC Supporter from Topsham

“No matter what the future holds for Maine, I know that we will need an organization that knows how to help everyday people have a voice in the decisions that affect our lives. That’s why I am happy that even after I’m gone, I can continue to support those who come next. It’s an honor to be a part of moving that forward, even in a small way.”

MPRC supporter from Portland

IRA Disbursement

Life Insurance Beneficiary

You can name MPRC as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy just as you can name people beneficiaries.

“MPRC has played a huge role in my life and it is extremely important to me that the organization continues into the future. That is why I am including MPRC in my estate planning. So many of MPRC’s campaigns are important to me. MPRC has proven time and time again that everyday people can fight together with the drive and commitment it takes to see initiatives through to the end and win.”

“I have been a proud MPRC member for many years because we stand up for all the people. MPRC is an effective organization, and we know how to win campaigns for social justice. But for me, the most important part of MPRC is the way the organization has supported me as a transgender person. I’m making a legacy gift because being part of MPRC is more than working with a team, it’s like being part of a family.”
