In March 2018, Portland-based Lift360 completed the transition of its core programs to two statewide organizations, the Maine Development Foundation, and the Maine Association of Nonprofits. The Leadership Intensive program will be offered by the Maine Development Foundation, and Emerging Leaders and Springboard by the Maine Association of Nonprofits. Lift360 itself will cease its operations.


Maine Development Foundation (MDF) assumed the Leadership Intensive and will offer it in addition to the Leadership Maine program. MDF will continue to operate the programs separately as each offers unique leadership development opportunities, are structured to achieve different goals, and have unique potential to grow and thrive in the marketplace. MDF is now recruiting for both the 2018 classes scheduled to begin in September.

Application for Leadership Intensive


The Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP) has assumed the Emerging Leaders and Springboard programs. Taking on Emerging Leaders enhances MANP’s focus on building the nonprofit leadership pipeline and at the same time connects the EL graduates to a network of resources, skilled mentors and colleagues in the nonprofit world. Adding Springboard expands MANP’s capacity to offer the professional expertise to the state’s charitable organizations. Springboard sessions are now running and MANP is recruiting for the fall 2018 Emerging Leaders class.
