Recognizing the success of ConnectRichmond in strengthening area nonprofits, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund asked ConnectNetwork to replicate the program in the Northern Neck/Middle Peninsula region, in March 2006.
ConnectRappahannock quickly became the region's indispensable one-stop source of local data and reports, nonprofit management resources, and more that citizens, businesses, government and nonprofits reply upon daily.
In 2011 the organization implemented changes in its structure and began rebuilding the website to become a more interactive and user-friendly portal for communication. The new website, Northern Neck Connection, launched in the Spring of 2012.
Today, the network serves the counties of Essex, Lancaster, Middlesex, Northumberland, Richmond, Westmoreland, Mathews and Gloucester.
