Maine Seacoast Mission was founded when two Mount Desert Island pastors and brothers, Alexander and Angus MacDonald, first sailed a small sloop called the Hope to islands and lighthouses along the Maine coast, intent on relieving the isolated conditions often found there. As a pastor in Bar Harbor, Angus had connections with many of the wealthy rusticators of Mount Desert Island. He asked for their help in funding the Hope and its charitable endeavors, and the Maine Seacoast Mission was born in 1905. This legacy of compassionate service continues today generously supported by generations of families who value our coastal and island communities.
We invite you to join the Maine Seacoast Mission Hope Society and become part of this exceptional group of men and women who have demonstrated their commitment to these communities. Including Maine Seacoast Mission in your estate plans will provide critical support–and hope–for generations to come.
