Nonprofit Week

Feb 6-12

Every day, Mainers rely on nonprofits to nurture our minds, protect our environment, inform our government, educate our children and drive our economy–all while investing significant financial and human resources throughout the state.

Nonprofit Week is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on nonprofits as the essential community infrastructure they are–help us make it a success!

Together we can elevate public + policymaker appreciation for how nonprofits work every day to make Maine a great place to live, work and visit.
