Support MATE

Ways to Give

Whether you choose to give time or money, your contributions are appreciated. MATE is happy to have you onboard as we seek to serve the Western Maine community.

You can also give via….

  • Memorial or Honorarium gifts
  • Gifts of appreciated stock
  • Plan through your estate & beneficiary designation
  • Support or sponsor an event/program or in-kind gifts
  • Charitable funds/employer matching funds
  • Donate by check or credit card or give through MATE MATTERS, our monthly email newsletter
  • Become one of our dedicated, generous monthly mission pledge partners. We hope you will!


One way of giving to MATE is by volunteering. During the summer our housing ministry needs volunteers to help with our housing repair work. MATE Youth Connection (MYC) is always looking for volunteers who have a passion for touching the lives of youth and our MATE Transitional Program is seeking volunteers to help assist with providing hospitality and social services to our transitional housing guests.
