Rosamond Thaxter Foundation

A lifelong resident of Kittery Point, Maine, Rosamond Thaxter was a philanthropist, writer, public speaker, and world traveler. “Rozzie,” as she liked to be called, established her charitable foundation in 1964 to continue to support local non-profit organizations she had been involved with for many years. Sandpiper, her biography of her grandmother, Celia Thaxter of the Isles of Shoals, is still in print, and her short memoir, Aunt Rozzie Remembers, is available from the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum.
