The Maine Public Broadcasting Network established these Major Giving Circles to recognize the support of generous donors who provide annual gifts totaling $1,200 or more. These donors believe that MPBN is an essential organization with statewide impact achieved through its public radio and television broadcast services, its educational outreach initiatives and its collaboration with other organizations and agencies. Through its Web-based services, the global reach of MPBN continues to advance the organization’s mission far beyond the reach of its broadcast signals.
