Announcing a nonprofit capacity building partnership with Community Foundation for a greater Richmond!

We’re excited to announce that the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNE) and the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond have partnered to develop targeted, responsive, and high-quality services and offerings that enhance the ability of nonprofits to manage change and deepen impact.

These services and offerings are available to greater Richmond nonprofits (serving the cities of Richmond, Petersburg, Colonial Heights and Hopewell and the counties of Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, and Powhatan) at no cost, and range across a spectrum of topics relevant to nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers. They include:

Technical Assistance – Do you have questions about board governance, organizational structure, fundraising, legal compliance or general nonprofit management? Ask CNE!

Nonprofit Education Sessions – 30-minutes of content, activities, and facilitated discussion during a regularly scheduled board meeting on a core governance topic such as the board’s roles and responsibilities, shared leadership between the board and ED/staff, and the board’s role in philanthropy.

Research, Data, and Learnings – Opportunities to connect and learn more about available community resources. Tutorials on how to use the Foundation Directory Online, a comprehensive online database to search for foundation and corporate giving. CNE’s 2023 Virginia Nonprofit Sector Report and 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector. And more!
