It’s That Time of Year!

Clinic Logo MediumAs the end of 2016 approaches, the Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic are actively engaged in the Year End Appeal to raise $50,000. All money donated to the Friends of the PCFC goes directly to the clinic to support the day-to-day activities of providing high quality healthcare to uninsured residents in the greater Portland area. The campaign is underway–we have until December 31, 2016 to to reach our goal. Please take a minute to make a donation. Every gift is important and appreciated.

You may donate online with a credit card. We are very excited to announce that we have the ability to accept subscription donations! A monthly gift of $25 translates into $300 over the course of a year. This is an easy way to stretch your dollars so the monthly impact is less, but your generosity multiplies for the Friends. Thank you in advance for considering this option.

Of course, one time gifts are also welcome. You may donate securely online with a credit card or if you prefer, you make write a check. Please make all checks payable to the Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic and send to 10A Beach Street, Suite 2, Portland, ME 04101.

The Friends of the PCFC is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In addition, we are licensed by the state of Maine to receive charitable donations. All gifts given to the Friends of the PCFC are tax deductible to the the extent allowed by law.

Thank you in advance for your generous contribution to our Year End Appeal. Help us reach our goal of $50,000! If you have questions or need more information, send them directly to the Friends through our contact page. You can also send a message to Either way, we will be in touch.

The members of the Board of Directors send their very best wishes for a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday season and a prosperous New Year. Thank you for recognizing the important work of the Portland Community Free Clinic in our community.

Woo-hoo, the climbers are barely off Mt. Katahdin and Brian Neider of Climb4acure has issued a challenge: if we can raise an additional $2,500, he’ll match it with a $5,000 gift from Climb4acure! Whoa!

The Fundraising Thermometer on this site has been updated. You can donate to an individual climber or specifically to Meet the Climb4acure Challenge! Once we reach $17, 500 that amount will magically increase to $22,500 of support for the Portland Community Free Clinic!


At the summit, July 11 2016

We raised $15,000 for the Katahdin Climb with donations from 129 people (thank you!). This was not a campaign of large donations from corporate sponsors–rather it was friends and family pitching in to support our climbers with gifts of $25 (23 people), $50 (31 people), or $100 (32 people). Donations ranged from $5 to $500, with one large gift from Climb4acure. If everyone reading this makes a small donation, we will reach our additional $2,500 goal in just a few days!

So, please, friends–reach into your pocketsĀ one more time and help us meet this additional goal! And if you haven’t donated yet, here’s your chance to make a difference. Thank you in advance for your support!

Leslie, on the behalf the of the Mt. Katahdin Climbing Team
