Alumni Service Projects
MDF works with alumni to identify a variety of volunteer, mentoring and community support projects for alumni to participate in individually, in groups and even as a full 2000-strong network.
Have a great project our alums could participate in or launch? Contact Kathy Shannon with ideas or to get involved in projects already underway.
Leadership Alumni Day of Service
We partner with organizations like Junior Achievement of Maine (JA) to offer an MDF Leadership Alumni Day of Service project each year.
Computers for Rural Libraries – Information Technology Exchange
The Information Technology Exchange program, led by Leadership Maine Alum Jodi Martin (Psi Class) needs your donations of cash and/or corporate surplus/unwanted personal computers/software (PCs only) to help rural libraries provide critical digital access to individuals and families to achieve their employment and educational goals.
38% of Maine’s communities do not have high speed Internet access or personal computer access. Maine’s rural libraries are outposts of high speed Internet and public computer access in communities where high speed Internet is not available.
A donation of $250 can ensure one of these rural libraries – and the community they serve – are equipped with an up-to-date computer and software, as well as the necessary warranties and tech support. A gift of $1,000 provides 4 library computers that will be used by hundreds of people in that area. These computers are typically in service for at least 4 years before needing replacement.
