I have found these organizations and consultants to be valuable resources in my work for my clients, and I am pleased to share their web sites with you:

Maine Association of Nonprofits

MANP is a statewide nonprofit membership organization, representative of and a champion for Maine nonprofits.  Its 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.  I am a Supporter Friend of MANP and I frequently present Skillbuilder grant writing workshops through the organization.

Maine Philanthropy Center
MPC is a nonprofit regional association of grantmakers working together to promote philanthropy and to increase its impact in Maine.  It holds an excellent biennial Philanthropy Partners Conference and offers free online access to its Directory of Maine Grantmakers (available also in print) and Foundation Directory Online at its offices in the University of Southern Maine Glickman Family Library.  I am an MPC Consulting Associate Member.

Maine Land Trust Network
MLTN, a program of the nonprofit Maine Coast Heritage Trust, strengthens the land conservation community by serving as a central hub of information, bringing conservationists together to facilitate information exchange and collaboration, and providing a broad array of programs, services, and resources that build the capacity and sustainability of land conservation organizations throughout the state.

It is the most comprehensive online source available for links to Maine conservation and natural resources news stories and events. It is edited by Jym St. Pierre, who invites readers to contribute relevant news items and announcements.

It organizes an annual conference in November, which rotates among the three states, and offers professional development, educational and networking opportunities to its members. I am a member of this chapter.

FC is the leading source of information on philanthropy worldwide. It maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. (and, increasingly, global) grantmakers and their grants, publishes the online Philanthropy News Digest and many books and reports, offers fundraising training, and operates the Foundation Directory Online subscription service. I subscribe to Foundation Directory Online Plus, and I find it a valuable research resource.
