Mission Statement

We strive to prepare all children in Virginia for the start of each school year by providing students in need with new backpacks and school supplies. Since our founding in 2010, we have donated over 3,900 backpacks to Virginia youth in need.

Giving Opportunities

Opportunity 1

CNE is excited to launch 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector!

Building on themes from 10 discussion sessions with 67 community members, and several leading national frameworks for nonprofit health and impact, the 7 Actionable Principles aim to create a shared understanding of what makes a healthy nonprofit and build a supportive learning community of nonprofits and funders.

We encourage you to check out the site and you can find a recording of our launch town hall here.

CNE Members: Schedule a complimentary hour of support and coaching around the 7 Actionable Principles here.
