The PATH Resource Center – a resource for area nonprofits – is made possible through a partnership between the PATH Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.* The PATH Resource Center, funded by the PATH Foundation, will be managed and operated by CNE.
The Center for Nonprofit Excellence at the PATH Resource Center offers tools, training, consulting and resources to nonprofits serving Fauquier, Rappahannock, and northern Culpeper counties to help strengthen their organizations’ impact on their communities. The Center was developed in consult with nonprofit leaders and the key stakeholders in the region who identified a clear need for community investment in business, professional development, and people within the nonprofit sector.
Some of the topics to be covered by the Center for Nonprofit Excellence include governance, philanthropy, marketing, finance, and community engagement. The Center includes resources for volunteer recruitment and management based on a recent PATH Foundation study of volunteer needs in the community.
“We are so thrilled to partner with The Center for Nonprofit Excellence and provide this valuable support to the many nonprofits in our region,” stated Christy Connolly president and CEO of the PATH Foundation. “Nonprofit clients can expect business resources, monthly training, opportunities to engage strategically with other nonprofits in the sector, and more, based on the needs identified within the community.”
