Networks, Coalitions + 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 compile resources on collaboration and strategic alliances.

Below are lists 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.

Is something missing or out-of-date? Please contact our Membership Manager by email to share information so we can continue to develop this resource page.
