About Our Work
MANP Advocacy Network
The threats to nonprofit autonomy, tax-exemptions, and charitable giving incentives have increased significantly. To answer these threats and be positioned to act on opportunities, we stepped up our presence our advocacy on behalf of all nonprofits in the state. To fund these efforts, we have created the MANP Advocacy Network. We can’t thank our Network members enough for supporting this work.
MANP’s advocacy work has never been more important than right now during the COVID-19 crisis. We are literally representing the voice and interests of the nonprofit sector day and night both in Augusta and DC. If your organization would like to join our network, please reach out to Sarah Woodard, firstname.lastname@example.org. Sarah is MANP’s Advocacy Director and the only registered lobbyist working on behalf of the nonprofit sector in Maine.
Thank You to Our Advocacy Network Members!
