Coastal Enterprises, Inc.. “CEI's mission guides our loan and investment decision-making.

We call this 3E or Triple Bottom Line investing.”

Island Institute. “The Island Institute is a nonprofit organization that serves as a voice for the balanced future of the islands and waters of the Gulf of Maine. We are guided by an island ethic that recognizes the strength and fragility of Maine's island communities and the finite nature of the Gulf of Maine ecosystems. Along the Maine Coast, the Island Institute seeks to:
  • support the islands' year-round communities;
  • conserve Maine's island and marine biodiversity for future generations;
  • develop model solutions that balance the needs of the coast's cultural and natural communities;
  • provide opportunities for discussion over responsible use of finite resources, and provide information to assist competing interests in arriving at constructive solutions.”

Maine Farmland Trust. “We're the only statewide land trust devoted exclusively to farmland protection. Our goal is to preserve 100,000 acres of farmland by 2014. Thatís the scale that is needed to make a meaningful impact.
Our members make our work possible. Our budget is primarily funded by individual donors and members.”
