Maine nonprofits are integral to Maine’s economy and quality of life. By strengthening the capacity, connections, and cross-sector influence of these organizations, MANP is playing a key leadership role in helping shape a prosperous future for the state. To ensure that Maine nonprofits are prepared to contribute, adapt, and thrive in our fast-changing world, MANP is building the capacity of new and existing members, developing and deepening relationships among them, and strengthening the sector’s partnership with the private and public sectors. MANP advances strategic priorities that guide our work in the years to come:

  • Increase the core capacity of Maine nonprofits to advance their missions.
  • Grow and deepen connections between Maine nonprofits so they realize the benefits of working and learning together.
  • Strengthen relationships among the nonprofit, public and private sectors, so Maine nonprofits are valued as influential and effective partners in addressing the challenges facing Maine.

Fundraising/Event Opportunities

Corporate and private donors can help Maine nonprofits gain access to MANP’s professional and leadership development programs by contributing to the MANP Access Fund. Throughout the year, MANP provides opportunities to sponsor events and publications that attract nonprofit, business and governmental leaders statewide, including programs in the Get on Board initiative, national speaker events, and other nonprofit management development opportunities.
