Nonprofits Profit Maine; Just Ask Biddeford

Nonprofits Profit Maine; Just Ask Biddeford

Printer-friendly version

Maine's nonprofits profit Maine. That's the takeaway from a biennial report on the status of the nonprofit sector in the Pine Tree State. 

According to the Maine Association of Nonprofits, the state's nonprofit organizations contribute an estimated $10 billion to the state's economy while employing 1 out of 7 Maine workers. 

In one of several cases focused on in the report, the group Heart of Biddeford has organized its community to attract 57 new businesses in their downtown district. 

Executive Director Delilah Poupore acknowledges this is the sort of development you'd expect to see a mayor or a city council or a local Chamber of Commerce engineer.
