Our Katahdin is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization working to promote community and economic development in the Katahdin region. The core of Our Katahdin is a website for people who love the Katahdin region and believe in its future. Our Katahdin is a connector -- pulling together ideas, people and money to move our community forward. 

We welcome you to learn more about our three main areas of focus:
Community Development, Entrepreneur Development and Industry Development.

Get involved!  Check out our Community ProjectsSubmit Ideas of your own, and Spread the Word to your social networks.


To date, Our Katahdin has been crowdsourcing donations. Many of you have donated to our community projects. This is awesome! Now, we are getting ready to provide you with an opportunity to invest in the local region as well.

Why are we doing this? We believe the Katahdin region is ready for community and economic development. Community development requires donations. Lots of them. Economic development requires investment.

We don’t want our future to be owned solely by other people. We want each of us, the people of the Katahdin region, to be able to own part of our future. Welcome to the vision of “Our Katahdin Capital”!

Our community leaders have been busy!

The Winterfest 2016 project is a collaboration of the Fin and Feather Club of Maine, the Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce and the Northern Timber Cruisers Snowmobile Club in an effort to raise funding for television commercial production and air time for the area's annual Winterfest!

The Spruce-Up Committee is a group of local volunteers whose purpose is to identify small projects that will improve the general appearance of the tri-town area. If we want businesses and individuals to relocate to the Katahdin region, let's make our towns as attractive and well-kept as possible.
