The Downeast Fisheries Partnership (DFP) is a 9-member collaborative in far NE Maine (aka, Downeast) focused on systems change to improve the health and of our fisheries-dependent communities in this economically & climate challenged region. Accordingly, DFP's 9 organizations have complimentary, but differently focused missions. We need our collaborative mission to resonate with funders from outside the region and to capture a few of our compelling collaborative success stories.
Having completed a new strategic and implementation plans and formed our 3 new goal teams, we are looking to tell the story about how and why our collaboration is an exiting and worthwhile organization to care about and fund.
