Megan L. Williams, of Rockland, will join United Mid-Coast Charities as the organization’s first-ever executive director. Founded in 1942, UMCC raises designated and undesignated funds that, in turn, are allocated to nonprofits in Knox and Waldo counties. UMCC is based in Camden. 

“Megan is the right person at just the right time for us,” said John Viehman, president of UMCC’s Board of Directors, in a news release. “She has a passion for social services, is a great collaborator, a natural leader. She’ll be key to sustaining our 76-year legacy of support for essential service providers here in Midcoast Maine. 

“Megan has a proven track record of leading local organizations and helping them progress by focusing on strategy and relationships. As the needs in our community continue to grow, we need to be ever more vigilant in making the agencies we support stronger and more impactful in meeting critical needs.” 

“I’m looking forward to helping friends and neighbors here in Knox and Waldo counties,” said Williams. “UMCC is uniquely situated to support the work of local agencies that do a great deal of good. I’m excited to start helping with this!”

Williams joined Georges River Land Trust in December 2014 as a development and fundraising professional. Prior to that, she was director of marketing and communications at Pen Bay Healthcare. 

A Maine native, Williams has been living and working in the Midcoast for 10 years. She lives in Rockland with her husband and two daughters.

UMCC is dedicated to the support of charities that provide social services and care to those most deserving, including medical, physical, social, psychiatric and community educational services.  UMCC strives to locate charities that offer the most possible benefit to area residents.
