CASTINE – Maine Maritime Academy is kicking off a multi-million-dollar fundraising campaign.
The goal of the Opening Doors – Changing Lives campaign is to raise $20 million over three years – doubling the amount of available funds for student scholarships.
MMA officials said scholarships are their most pressing need as 80 percent of the school’s students are provided some form of financial aid.
“The campaign is also focusing on educating and involving our alumni, faculty, staff and students, families and the community, to continue to build a culture of giving at mma which will help us to be financially sustainable into the future,” said MMA Vice President for Institutional Advancement Christopher Haley.
Maine Maritime is a coed college offering programs dealing with engineering, management, science and transportation.
