The Brick & Beam Society was created to carry the torch and invigorate our community’s established and emerging leaders to invest their time, skills, and finances to make a measurable difference in Greater Portland.
The Brick & Beam Society thoughtfully selects and explores an area of focus, and then tackles it holistically. Our current focus is aligned with Thrive2027 and supports early childhood education with a specific interest in STEM programming for under-served kids in Cumberland County.
As an individual giving group of the United Way of Greater Portland, we leverage the organization’s rich history, resources, knowledge, and relationships for maximum impact.
WE ARE A GROUP OF DOERS.
Brick & Beam Society offers its members:
- Thoughtful philanthropic events with local and national leaders that help members shape their personal giving philosophy.
- Hands-on education and volunteering opportunities to truly understand the issues.
- Purposeful, topical conversations and workshops with executives and thought leaders.
- Impact investing where Brick & Beam Society ultimately determines how its dollars are used to make the biggest difference.
Membership in The Brick & Beam Society is based upon an annual contribution of $1,000.
The step-up program allows participants to contribute $500, with a commitment to getting to $1,000 within three years. Step-up participants will be recognized as members starting in year one.
