2021 Annual Appeal: Stay Connected!
Time & Location
About The Event
Thank you for staying connected.
When we shut down last year, we didn’t know what to expect. Would anyone sign on to our virtual programming? Could we find speakers and meaningful ways to engage our members? With so much uncertainty, would people make time to invest in global affairs?
The answer was a resounding yes!
In the last 12 months, we have welcomed more than 1,000 attendees to 30+ programs. We have hosted speakers from around the world and connected with new audiences all around our state. Even with the internet awash with big name webinars and simulcasts, attendance at our virtual events never wavered.
Our mission matters
The response to our programs has been overwhelming. And we shouldn’t be surprised! We live in an interconnected and interdependent world. Global literacy, awareness of world events aren’t luxuries or esoteric pursuits -- they are baseline requirements for future success.
And so do you!
Our programs provide Maine residents of all ages and backgrounds with access to high quality information about the forces shaping our world. But they also provide opportunities to discuss and debate, to ask questions, seek advice, to listen and learn. Our programs create connections, foster understanding and build a community dedicated to global citizenship. In other words, the power of our programs is you!
And now we need you more than ever.
Sustaining our operations throughout the pandemic has come at a cost. We need your support to relaunch our in-person programs in Fall 2021 and build on the lessons of the past year. We need your help to ensure our programs remain free of charge to Maine students and are accessible to those who want to engage but lack the means to do so.
The pandemic underscored the urgency behind our mission, but it also affirmed the value of our connections and the power of our globally committed, globally curious community. With your help, we will use that power to expand our mission in 2022!
Thank you for your generosity, and for being the foundation of everything we do.
