This year, Spurwink welcomed several new Corporate Partners. Support from these corporate partners make life-changing programming possible by covering startup costs and other needs for programs alongside state and insurance reimbursement, making programs sustainable long-term. Corporate donors like Anania Bailey Advertising, HUB, and Gorham Savings Bank, provide investments and create opportunities that allow Spurwink to meet critical behavioral health needs in our community.
While working with Anania Bailey Advertising for the Humanitarian Awards in June, we had the unique opportunity to see what Anania Bailey calls their “vow to conscientious creativity.” As founder and managing partner of the agency, Peter Anania, shared, “We’re more interested in the impact that our creative work can have on the world around us.” The incredible video the creative team at Anania Bailey created played a central role in the event’s success in raising more than $172,000 for adults, children, and families in Maine experiencing behavioral health challenges.
The success of the Humanitarian Awards was also made possible by HUB International, who affirms that “service is one of our founding values – not an abstract concept but a commitment. And we believe that no one deserves that commitment more than our clients and the communities in which we all live and work.” HUB’s commitment to Spurwink is aiding in bringing access to behavioral health care to 7,300 individuals right here in Maine.
Spurwink is so grateful for support from corporate businesses investing in Maine communities and we are excited to add Gorham Savings Bank to that list. In addition to their sponsorship of the Humanitarian Awards, Gorham Savings Bank generously supported Spurwink through the Maine Marathon as a beneficiary of its 2021 all-volunteer, nonprofit race. “Thriving nonprofits make our community better. GSB believes in Spurwink’s mission”, said Steve deCastro, president and CEO of Gorham Savings Bank. “Additionally, as lead sponsor of the Maine Marathon, and with thanks to race director Bob Dunfey, we are proud to be part of an event that generates much-needed funding for many deserving local organizations.”
Investments like these lead to innovation and new programs, which help us address unmet community need. Each Corporate Partner is uniquely positioned to support the mosaic of Spurwink, and we are truly grateful for their dedicated support that Spurwink can count on. Please join us in welcoming Anania Bailey Advertising, HUB, and Gorham Savings Bank to our Corporate Partner program.
