The same natural forces that make the Marginal Way unique and breathtaking have also caused serious damage. Destruction by repeated storms has cost millions of dollars to repair. The Town of Ogunquit has maintained the Marginal Way with assistance from federal funds. However, the Army Corp of Engineers will no longer provide funding for maintenance. As a result, the burden for upkeep falls on the Town of Ogunquit.
In order to keep the Marginal Way safe and accessible to its many followers, we are relying on donors like you for support.
Net donations (after operations expense) apply directly to the Marginal Way Preservation Fund to safeguard the future of this unique footpath.
