Maine Nonprofit Day 2020

Showcase Your Mission on Nonprofit Day!

MANP’s 17th Annual Nonprofit Day on February 11, 2020 helps organizations like yours raise awareness about the importance of Maine’s nonprofit sector and how #NonprofitsWorkforME. Each year, MANP selects 12 members to join us in the Hall of Flags for a collective day of action to showcase the diversity and impact of the nonprofit sector.

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 into our state.

Together we can:

  • increase policymaker awareness of nonprofits and their vital contributions to Maine’s economy and way of life;
  • strengthen relationships between nonprofit leaders and public officials;
  • prepare to participate fully in the formation of public policy.
