“The communities we serve and the issues we care about suffer when we are fragmented and isolated. Now more than ever, nonprofits need to unite around our common values, develop a shared vision and priorities, and exercise our collective voice for a better future.”
~Audrey Alvarado, Co-Founder of the Nonprofit Congress
Meet our Advocacy Committee and learn about our education, public awareness, and lobbying efforts.
Every year, early in the legislative session, we bring nonprofits to the State House to raise awareness of the critical role nonprofits play in our state and strengthen relationships between policy makers and nonprofit staff and volunteers.
Nonprofits know their communities and their issues. We work with Nonprofit Vote to ensure every eligible nonprofit volunteer, staff member, and constituent is educated and votes. We also survey candidates and post their responses.
We lobby and advocate on behalf of the sector. Learn about the issues and campaigns on which we work.
Find coalitions and legislators, get informed, take action to make Maine a great place to work, live and raise a family.
