Guess Who's Coming to Maine?

by Mary Ellms

We’re So Excited to Bring Kim Klein to Maine this Fall!

MANP and the Quimby Family Foundation are delighted to announce that Kim Klein, internationally recognized speaker, author, and founder of Grassroots Fundraising Journal, is making a rare appearance in Maine. There are two opportunities to see her speak.

Executive Leadership Forum: Nonprofits Talking Taxes

October 25, Portland 

Nonprofits Talking Taxes is an effort to engage 10% of the nation’s workforce–people who work for nonprofits (the percentage is even higher in Maine!)–in conversation about what taxes should pay for and what private sources should pay for.

Join us for this important forum to learn and discuss how, by working collectively instead of issue by issue, we can exercise our aggregate clout with lawmakers and at the ballot box to create communities that reflect the values of the common good.

Early bird pricing ends Sept 15. Discounts for groups. Scholarships available.

Focus on Fundraising: How to Survive + Thrive in the “New Normal”¬†

October 26, Portland 

Many nonprofit staff, boards, and volunteers find the process of fundraising extremely difficult and frustrating. Asking is scary; deciding which strategies to use, how to implement them, and how to evaluate their success is anxiety-provoking; and keeping track of donor data is tedious. What is a nonprofit to do?

In this practical day-long workshop, you will learn:

  • How to use fundraising strategies to acquire, retain, and upgrade donors
  • What characterizes donor prospects for your organization
  • How to build a fundraising team
  • The psychology and logistics of personal solicitation
