The Hoffman Family Foundation is evolving to support organizations doing work that is personally important to Jean and her children, Cooper and Luna. The Foundation has focused on supporting community, education and culture and ensuring access to reproductive healthcare in Maine. We also support the health of pets, the long-term health and sustainability of the ocean and wilderness, as well as dialog with China.
