Are you interested in what it means to be a nonprofit organization? Have you thought about starting your own organization? This interactive session will provide an introduction to terms and structures related to nonprofits in the United States.

Event hosted by: Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP), the City of Portland, and SCORE Portland.


• Learn the basics of organizational structures
• Understand the roles of nonprofits in the US culture
• Review some key elements required by nonprofits.


This program is recommended for New Mainers, but anyone interested in learning about the cultural expectations of nonprofits in the US is welcomed to enroll. It will not provide training on the steps to starting a nonprofit, but there is a separate workshop available on that topic offered at SCORE a few times a year. To allow enough time for conversation, space is limited to 20.
