Portside’s 1% For Maine®: Investing in Maine’s Tomorrow

Portside’s 1% For Maine® initiative is dedicated to empowering Maine’s youth and fostering a better world for generations to come. By selling homes in the community, Portside agents gain the privilege of giving back to the communities they call home and work in.

Through the Portside Foundation and the active participation of Portside agents, 1% of top-line revenue is donated on a quarterly basis to local nonprofits addressing systemic issues in Maine. These critical issues encompass education, generational poverty, affordable housing, substance abuse, limited access to medical care, and food insecurity.
