Stories of Impact: Nonprofit Return on Investment Case Studies

Scratch the surface of why people love Maine and you’ll find a strong network of nonprofit organizations delivering on their missions. Nonprofits promote the values and ideals that create and support our quality of life; they touch the lives of each and every Maine citizen.

They also create jobs, develop community leaders, and invest significant financial and human resources in communities throughout the state.
