Join the Mission at the 2024 Sunbeam Award Gala to honor the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation and Island Institute on Thursday, August 15 at the Bar Harbor Club in Bar Harbor, Maine. Reservations are now open for individual tables and full tables. 

This year’s awardees were chosen for their commitment to strengthening both island and Downeast communities through their longtime partnership with the Mission. “In a year where we are celebrating and deepening our partnerships, we are thrilled to honor two organizations who have been dedicated to Mission communities for years,” says Mission President John Zavodny. “Their long-standing support and trust in the Mission are essential in providing continued support to communities where it is most needed.”  

Your gift to the Maine Seacoast Mission makes you part of all we do.

The Diana Davis Spencer Foundation is a committed philanthropic partner with deep ties to Maine. Diana Davis Spencer, a journalist and activist, guides her organization’s grantmaking efforts. Her daughter, Abby Spencer Moffat, a former business leader and entrepreneur, leads the Foundation as Chief Executive Officer and President. 

Island Institute will be honored for its enduring role as a community partner. For 40 years, the Institute has been committed to working with island and coastal communities in marine economy, sustainability, and community. 

The Mission would like to thank its Corporate Sponsors and Corporate Donors for continued support. This year’s supporters include Bronze Sponsor First National Bank; Copper Sponsors Machias Savings Bank and Acadia Bike & Coastal Kayaking Tours; and Corporate Donor Front Street Shipyard
