Empowering People with Purpose
The Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP) empowers people with purpose—people and organizations at the forefront of the issues and opportunities that will determine Maine’s future prosperity. As a leading advocate and resource, we ensure that Maine nonprofits are adapting, thriving, and contributing in a fast-changing world.
Founded in 1994, MANP’s mission is to enrich the quality of community and personal life in Maine by strengthening the leadership, voice and organizational effectiveness of Maine nonprofits.
