Bold Ideas

The Maine Community Foundation is looking for opportunities to build leadership capital in Maine. To that end, we launched the Leadership Learning Collaborative in 2015, convening representatives from a number of programs to explore how we can best cultivate new leaders. An important part of MaineCF’s leadership role is to serve as a catalyst for social change, to convene groups to address pressing issues facing Maine.
