CACF and CNE Partner and Announce Online Nonprofit Directory
The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) and the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNE) are very pleased to announce a significant new resource for the community: an online nonprofit directory. Through the Nonprofit Directory, community members now have a one-stop-shop for current information on the mission, programs, and funding needs of the diverse array of nonprofits that are the backbone of our community. This Directory enables ever-changing nonprofits to provide current information instantly to the community and offers donors an easy-to-use tool to perform due diligence, explore organizations in a particular field of interest and learn about real-time funding needs.
"CNE is excited to partner with CACF to provide a community resource that highlights the critical and varied work of the local nonprofit sector" said Cristine Nardi, Executive Director, CNE, "Nonprofits are a social safety net, enrich us via arts, education and culture and are an economic engine in our community. We hope the directory will help community members better understand and engage with area nonprofits."
"The Charlottesville area is fortunate to have so many generous donors who want to improve the quality of life for the people in our region. This directory will assist individuals to further the impact of their philanthropy. And it will help CACF and other funders stay abreast of the needs of the many nonprofits and the community they serve," John Redick, President of CACF added.
Through the directory nonprofit organizations are able to update their directory profiles to keep their programs and needs current for the community. Participation is free to nonprofit organizations and the information provided is accessible on both the CACF and CNE websites. Additionally, nonprofits will find the directory a useful tool to learn about the work of other organizations to facilitate collaboration and partnerships.
