Network, Alliance, Coalition and Peer Groups

Nonprofits and their employees benefit greatly from considering collaborative approaches to solving problems and from sharing information and solutions for common challenges. There’s amazing work happening in Maine! MANP is here to help you connect with and learn from one another, and we also have a collection of resources on strategic alliances!

Below are resources to help your nonprofit staff find and connect with peers doing similar work. We know there are many other networks – formal and informal – across the state. Please contact our Membership Manager by email or at 207-871-1885 to share information about yours so MANP can continue to develop this resource page.
