Maine bursting with nonprofits

Maine bursting with nonprofits: "While the issue for arts groups involves finding enough money, the driving factor for what some are calling a financial crisis in the arts is sheer volume.

Put simply, there are too many arts and cultural groups in Maine.

From 2000 to 2005, the number of Maine nonprofit organizations across all sectors grew by more than 500, from 1,805 to 2,333, according to the Maine Association for Nonprofits.

At 1.77 per 1,000 people, Maine has more nonprofit groups per capita than all but Vermont, Alaska and Montana, according to the association."
