OUR MISSIONThe Dan River Nonprofit Network delivers supports to ensure nonprofit excellence. We believe that Dan River Region’s nonprofits improve the health, self-sufficiency and quality of life of our community.
The Network has three primary goals and focus areas to accomplish our mission:
- Networking Opportunities: We promote connections that support resource sharing, coordination, and collaboration to ensure excellence in service provision.
- Skills Training: We deliver high quality skills trainings that support and equip boards, executives, and staff to achieve nonprofit excellence.
- Vetted Resources: We provide centralized access to vetted resources, tools, and information supporting excellence in the nonprofit sector.
OUR VISIONStronger nonprofits. Stronger community.
Since 2013, representatives from many of the area’s nonprofits have come together on a monthly basis, to network and learn about topics relevant and applicable to operating nonprofit organizations. This grassroots organization evolved from an informal concept to the Dan River Nonprofit Network of today with varied support structures in place for nonprofits to strengthen their own operations. Moving forward, the Dan River Nonprofit Network will provide more extensive, comprehensive capacity building opportunities, increased networking and collaboration incentives, and implementation of resourcing services to aid staff, board, and volunteers of the area nonprofits.
