MPC feels strongly that there is great value in funders being engaged in public policy on the state and national levels.
In 2014 MPC convened a Public Policy Task Team charged with developing recommendations for how MPC can best support and enhance the public policy work of our philanthropic network. Read more about the task team and their resulting report. In 2017, the Public Policy Committee for Maine's Philanthropic Network was officially launched. This committee is responsible for enhancing and implementing the recommendations outlined in the 2015 Public Policy - A Path to Greater Impact report.
