Amidst pandemic, charities and nonprofits must get creative to raise funds

Printer-friendly version

Jennifer Hutchins, who serves on Gov. Janet Mills’ Economic Recovery Committee and is executive director of Maine Association of Nonprofits, has been monitoring the pandemic’s financial impact on nonprofits.

In a poll Maine Association of Nonprofits conducted in July in which more than 376 organizations discretely responded, 87 percent said they expected some sort of revenue shortfall due to the pandemic.

“Early on in this crisis we were seeing non-profits right and left having to cancel their annual fundraisers that would be a significant part of their budget,” Hutchins said. “They just didn’t have that option. They had to start isolating their staff and everybody is staying home. And so these fundraisers are getting canceled.”
