MOFGA Forever

MOFGA's endowment funds help make MOFGA a financially stable organization with earnings large enough to support long-range planning.

MOFGA encourages all members to consider planned gifts or bequests to the association.

We are planning for the future and we intend to serve Maine's agricultural community for many generations to come.

Funded by private contributions, bequests, gifts in memoriam, and Life Membership fees ($1250/person), our endowment is designed to make MOFGA's programs grow and flower. Endowment principal increases with each gift, earning interest to support our general operations.

Gifts to MOFGA's endowment allow supporters to extend the benefits of their tax-deductible donations long into the future.

The endowment provides many benefits to MOFGA, including:

  • the assurance of future funding;
  • the availability of services to meet programming needs;
  • income for new ventures;
  • the ability to demonstrate stability and permanence; and
  • flexibility in strategic planning.
