Join us for the 2013 Hon. Edmund S. Muskie Access to Justice Award honoring Meg Baxter on May 29, 2013 at 5:30pm at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, 88 Spring Street, Portland, Maine.
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. Donations to the Fund can be made throughout the year and are used to provide support for Maine's legal service providers.
The Fund is staffed on a volunteer basis to minimize program expenses. It is administered by a five-person Board of Trustees.
