A Conversation with the Community Foundation

December 15, 2020 @ 9:30 am 10:30 am

2020 has been a challenging year in the New River Valley, but it’s also been a time of incredible generosity and innovation.

With the support of hundreds of donors, the CFNRV will award approximately $600,000 this year in grants and scholarships. These awards, along with programs like GiveLocalNRV, our monthly Nonprofit Listening Sessions, and our collaborative projects, have helped us to learn more about our community’s needs, and how we can best meet those needs during and long after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join our staff and board members for a conversation about our region’s most critical needs, and how nonprofits are meeting those needs in innovative ways. Our conversation will include:

  • How food assistance organizations are meeting increased demand during the pandemic,
  • How childcare centers, public schools, and social service organizations are supporting vulnerable children and families ,
  • How nonprofits of all kinds have quickly and effectively pivoted services to virtual settings, and,
  • How the CFNRV has supported these efforts with more flexible grant-making, expanded programs, and staff support.
