For students entering the University of Maine, the cost of completing four years of studies are increasing each year. Today, the average graduating senior faces over $20,000 in debt and that number will continue to grow. To offset the costs, more and more students are benefiting from direct donations to specific programs made possible through The University of Maine Foundation. The scholarships funded through the Foundation are created and supported entirely by alumni and donors who want to give back to the University. For over a decade, CD&M has developed outreach materials and annual reports that have proven invaluable for reaching prospective donors.
The 2013 UMF Annual Report highlighted University of Maine receiving the nation's top overall performance rating for a land-grant university.
