Donation Information

The Maine Professional Photographers Association (MPPA) Scholarship Fund is a suitable way to honor and remember colleagues and friends who have passed away. The MPPA established a fund for the purpose of providing educational assistance to those who are active members. It is a wonderful way for eligible members to improve their knowledge, hone their skill, and make their contributions to the advancement of the photography profession.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause by adding the MPPA Scholarship Fund to your will or as a gift “In lieu of” just to say “We’ll never forget you.” The fund awards scholarships on a quarterly basis and each year at the MPPA awards banquet during convention.

If you have questions, please contact the Scholarship Committee.  The committee’s current Governing Board includes Trish Logan (Chairperson), Crystal Reynolds, Jim Walker, and the current and immediate past Presidents of the MPPA.

Donations may be made payable to:
