Our Priorities

Our Mission

The John T. Gorman Foundation advances ideas and opportunities that can improve the lives of disadvantaged people in Maine.

To achieve the greatest impact, the Foundation has a special interest in strengthening families and helping communities provide them with the supports and opportunities they need to thrive. This focus on strengthening families reflects our founder, Tom Gorman's recognition that his personal success and achievement were largely derived from the support provided to him by his family and community, as well as his desire to provide those less fortunate with opportunities to succeed.




"We are excited about the potential of this new Fellowship to be a major catalyst for advancing the John T. Gorman Foundation's mission. We believe it will be a unique and valuable addition to the current array of leadership development efforts available in Maine."
