10 Good Things


In 2017, we celebrated CNE’s 10th anniversary and strong nonprofits by spotlighting 10 Good Things in our communities and the role that nonprofits play in each. As part of our Celebration of Strong Nonprofits event, we supplied the pen and paper, and you gave us your ideas – both aspirational and practical – for how we can all get and stay engaged in what’s good in our communities.

We invite you to explore the community responses below which, we hope, will inspire you to take action.  (And we welcome your ideas!) Of course, these aren’t the only good things or ways to get involved in building strong, vibrant communities, but they’re a great start. Special thanks to our 10 Good Things Ambassadors for the night, and to everyone who discussed, debated and shared such creative ideas. You inspire us.
