Nonprofit Day at the State House

Each year we host events and provide resources to:

  • increase the awareness of nonprofits and their vital contributions to Maine’s economy and way of life;2013 Exhibitors
  • strengthen relationships between nonprofit leaders and public officials; and
  • encourage nonprofit leaders to participate fully in the formation of public policy that impacts the communities they serve.

Every other year, we also feature the release of our Partners in Prosperity: The Nonprofit Sector Impact report.
