Maine Nonprofit Day

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 Day is a collective day of action to raise awareness for how #NonprofitsWorkforME.

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 that impacts the communities they serve

Save the date for the 17th annual Maine Nonprofit Day: February 11, 2020!

More information coming soon.

Nonprofit Day 2019

The 16th Annual Maine Nonprofit Day was January 17, 2019 and we celebrated with the release of our brand-new Adding Up Impact report, a social media awareness campaign, member exhibits in the hall of flags, and a fun social hour at Cushnoc Brewing Co. in Augusta. Thank you to everyone who made the day a great success!

Hall of Flags Celebration

The following exhibitors were selected to help showcase the diversity of the nonprofit sector in the Hall of Flags. Exhibitors were selected from applications received based on a variety of factors, including geography, mission, size, and membership history.
