Important Advocates for the Maine Musuem of Photographic Arts

MMPA was launched by a Kick starter campaign in 2010.  The individuals listed below gambled on us by reaching into their wallets and giving generously to fund a startup they believed might make it.  We are in our ninth year and we are still being funded by generous individuals, institutions and foundations.  We are grateful and appreciate every dollar we Get.  90 percent of the donations we receive go directly into programming. MMPA is a 501c3 and your donations are tax deductible.  If you've given to MMPA, thank you for your support as we wouldn't be here without you.  


Clicking this button makes our next exhibition possible.  Thank you.
