Harold Alfond

Harold Alfond, the founder of Dexter Shoe Company and the Harold Alfond Foundation, was a longtime supporter of Maine communities in which he and his family worked and resided.

Over the course of his life, Mr. Alfond contributed millions of dollars to charitable causes.  Mr. Alfond was an accomplished athlete, a sports fan, and someone who believed strongly that athletics offer young people valuable opportunities for personal growth. Accordingly, many of Mr. Alfond’s gifts were made to public and private colleges and universities and private secondary schools to construct athletic facilities and playing fields.

The University of New England has two facilities that honor Mr. Alfond's vision and generosity: The Harold Alfond Center for the Health Sciences and the Harold Alfond Forum, set to open in fall 2012.
