Campaign Central

United Way of Eastern Maine raises funds each year to support five counties in Eastern Maine, helping strengthen our community for everyone who lives here.  The majority of those funds are raised through workplace campaigns. If you’d like to introduce a workplace campaign to your company, contact Jesse Moriarity at (207) 941-2800 or to learn more.
