About Us

The Muskie Fund for Legal Services is a nonprofit fund with 501(c)3 status that was established to support the direct provision of legal services to low-income and needy elderly Maine residents.   The Fund has created a permanent award that is designed to recognize outstanding individual efforts to promote access to justice in Maine. Each year the Fund holds a fundraising dinner to honor the individual and raise money for legal services. Exclusive of actual Dinner expenses, 100% of Fund proceeds are distributed to the Fund beneficiaries each year.

The Fund is staffed on a volunteer basis to minimize program expenses. It is administered by a five-person Board of Trustees.

Donations to the Fund can be made throughout the year and are used to provide support for Maine's legal service providers.
