September 21, 2023 2023 Giving Guide


2024 Goals

Boots2Roots’ enduring goals are 1) to have military-members, Veterans and spouses hired within 60 days of arriving to the state (93% success rate); and 2) for our “Teammates” to stay in their first post-military job for at least 12 months (94% success rate). We are working to enroll over 175 Veterans into our Transition to Work Program this year, and to make Maine the destination of choice for more of the 200,000 military members that transition to civilian life annually.

Fundraising events/Opportunities

Please join Boots2Roots’ staff, volunteers and stakeholders every third Thursday of the month for “Thirsty Thursday.” It’s a casual opportunity to learn about Boots2Roots, meet our “teammates” (potential employees) and explore ways to help bring more Veterans and their families to Maine. Email or follow us on LinkedIn for more about our next Thirsty Thursday destination. We are also active members of the Portland, Bangor, Kennebec Valley, Penobscot Bay, Lewiston/Auburn and Central Aroostoock Chambers of Commerce. We look forward to connecting at a future chamber event.

Giving Opportunities

Boots2Roots is seeking long-term diversified funding in support of efforts to bring more military talent to Maine’s workforce. Primary funding sources historically include a diverse set of Maine business partners, private foundations and the state of Maine. Boots2Roots doesn’t charge for its services and has no organic revenue stream, so long-term partnerships are essential to success.

For those interested in learning about partnership levels and how to support Boots2Roots, please reach out to our executive director and/or visit our website and select the “donate” tab.

We welcome new partners who are ready to move this important mission forward for Maine’s newest Veterans and for Maine’s workforce.

Volunteer Opportunities

Boots2Roots has an abundance of volunteer opportunities. These include working as a member of our Advisory Board to develop ways of connecting Veterans to Maine employers; acting as a peer-mentor for transitioning military members; and serving as a resume, interview or career coach. You don’t have to be a Veteran to volunteer. We are looking for people who have a passion for helping people and contributing to best outcomes for Maine.
