Give Back To Those Who Served

Amusing seasonal photoshoots, fun and functional exercise equipment, tea parties, Bingo kits, and roasting marshmallows – when you choose to give to Maine Veterans’ Homes, every dollar goes to support the Resident Activities Funds at our six Homes across the state. As an independent nonprofit organization, the generosity of individuals and organizations is vital in helping us supplement the extracurricular activities our Veterans enjoy.

Daily, we care for approximately 600 Veterans, their spouses, and Gold Star parents in our six Homes across Maine. Our certified activities staff cultivate a variety of programs for our residents to enjoy. Activities run the gamut from musical events, games, virtual reality programs, and projects in the arts to ensuring that we have an ever-changing stock of large print books and magazines, puzzles, and other items to ensure residents are engaged.

We have selected our Resident Activities Funds to be the recipient of all gifts made to MVH, unless you’ve noted otherwise. If you prefer to have your donation benefit a specific area of the Home, a special project, or a particular event, let us know at the time of your donation. For more information, visit Ways to Restrict A Gift.

Maine Veterans’ Homes accepts donations securely online, in person, or through the mail. If donating via the mail or in person, we ask that you fill out this Charitable Donation Form so that we may thank you properly and provide you with a receipt for your donation.

Community Fundraising Guide

People often ask us what they can do for our Veterans. This inspired us to create a Community Fundraising Guide that outlines ways children, adults, and businesses, individuals and groups alike, can support the residents of Maine Veterans’ Homes. The guide contains lots of ideas for fundraisers, steps for holding a successful fundraiser, along with ways the Development Office can assist with these efforts. Once again, all money raised and donated to our Veterans goes to our Resident Activities Funds. Happy Fundraising and we hope to hear from you soon!
