Strengthen your Organization.

Achieve your Mission.

Do you have questions about board governance, organizational structure, fundraising, compliance, or general nonprofit management? Ask CNE! Our staff are here to help. Call us at 434-244-3330 or fill out the Ask CNE form.

Please note: Most Ask CNE assistance is free. However, if a question takes more than 15 minutes to answer, we encourage you to consider CNE membership.* CNE can connect you with an experienced consultant for projects or longer-term engagements.

*CNE is a member-driven community resource that supports nonprofits and the people who power them. (If you are located in or serving the Tri-Cities, Western Tidewater, Culpeper, Fauquier, or Rappahannock Counties, you are considered a CNE member). That means we have programs and resources to support any organization, no matter its mission or size.

Prior to CNE, nonprofits were doing really good work, but they did not all have the resources to excel. CNE creates an equal opportunity to resources that strengthen area nonprofits and subsequently the community at large. Educate. Develop. Facilitate. Connect. Advise. Inspire. That is CNE at work for our whole community.
