Maintenance of The Marginal Way
A Partnership that worksOgunquit, by virtue of its Town Charter, is obligated to maintain the Marginal Way. It is assisted in this effort by the Ogunquit Marginal Way Committee and the Marginal Way Preservation Fund, Inc. (MWPF).
The MWPF, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has established a permanent endowment fund to aid the town with grants to help defray the costs associated with major renovation projects to maintain and preserve the Marginal Way.
Soon after announcing our "Virtual Deed" donor program, dozens of Marginal Way friends ordered their customized, framed "Virtual Deeds" to a favorite spot along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit. Give a Virtual Deed to someone you love. Mail us a check for $200 (or use Paypal). Include the name of your loved one (or in honor of someone) and the vicinity or Parcel Number (a birthdate?) that you want "conveyed."
