MANP Advocacy Network
Ensuring nonprofit voices are at the table
The threats to nonprofit autonomy, tax-exemptions, and charitable giving incentives have increased over the past decade and to answer these threats and be positioned to act on opportunities, MANP has stepped up our advocacy on behalf of all nonprofits in the state.
MANP’s Advocacy Network was created to expand staffing and resources for this essential work. The following organizations have made an additional investment to support MANP's efforts to amplify nonprofit voices, challenges, and contributions to our elected officials in Augusta and D.C.
