Maine Association Of Nonprofits, (MANP)

Who We Are

A statewide membership organization representative of and champion for Maine nonprofits. Our mission is to strengthen the leadership, voice, and organizational effectiveness of our state's nonprofits so that they can better enrich the quality of community and personal life in Maine. The Maine Association of Nonprofits (The Association) was formed in March of 1994 by a core of seven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to "advance Maine's nonprofit sector." It has now grown to over 715 nonprofit members and over 125 corporate supporters, voluntarily cooperating to improve their organizations and the nonprofit sector as a whole. Membership draws from all parts of the sector. Our vital work includes advocacy, group services (cost savings programs), technical assistance (education), and networking and is based on a model in place in thirty-eight states of the nation.
