Become a Nonprofit Member

Prior to CNE, nonprofits were doing really good work, but they did not all have the resources to excel. There was not a level playing field regarding access to training and expertise; in a lot of ways it was a community of haves and have nots: opportunities for excellence existed for the agencies who had connections to resources. 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.
