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;
- 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 nonprofit impact report. Adding Up Impact: Maine Nonprofits at Work (2015) is free for download!
