Governor's Budget Targets Nonprofits
Governor LePage's proposed 2016/2017 biennial budget includes provisions that will negatively impact the work of Maine's land trusts and the state's broader nonprofit community. The proposal includes taxing certain nonprofit properties, including conservation lands, and repealing itemized deductions for charitable contributions. The Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP) has pulled together a coalition of organizations concerned with this proposal. MCHT is part of the coalition and encourages you to learn more on the MANP Website.
