Reduced Cost Tickets

Maine Philanthropy Center is committed to creating a financially accessible conference for all. To this end, we created a fund to partially or fully subsidize the cost of Nonprofit tickets. To access these funds, choose a reduced price ticket at registration. We hope that those who can pay full cost for their tickets will choose to do so. This will allow those that truly need the support to access it.  Reduced price tickets will be made on a rolling basis until we run out of scholarship funds.

Event Structure and Schedule

The 2021 PPC will be entirely virtual and include keynote remarks and breakout sessions that will provide participants with opportunities to explore key questions and issues related to equity, power, relationships, and action both as a large group and within smaller cohorts that promote interaction and dialogue.

The PPC Planning Committee is working to finalize the details of the day's schedule. A schedule overview is below and will be updated regularly.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Your sponsorship makes these connections and conversations possible. In addition, sponsorship aligns your organization with a trusted, well-established, and thoughtful brand, and, in an increasingly distanced world, ensures MPC continues to be a positive force for connection, education, network building, and relationship facilitation.
