West Quoddy Keepers

Set on the most easterly point in the United States, the West Quoddy Head Light was first built in 1808. The lighthouse is known for its distinctive red stripes which help it stand out against the snowy backdrop of a Lubec winter. The West Quoddy Head Light Keepers Association’s endowment, managed by the community foundation since 2005, enables it to maintain a center for visitors to learn more about the lighthouse, the community of Lubec, and maritime history.

A Passion for Maritime History

Penobscot Marine Museum curator Ben Fuller of Cushing, Maine, is passionate about maritime history. As part of his legacy, he wants to support that passion, but he still needs income for expenses today. Creating a charitable gift annuity at the Maine Community Foundation is helping him accomplish both goals. The CGA will provide income to Fuller and his wife, Leslie, during their lifetime, and then become a charitable endowment for cultural programs in Maine.
