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.
