NNConnection is no longer accepting new signups. Current organizational users can continue to post information and the public can view and search this site until December 15, 2019 when it will be discontinued. Thank you for your cooperation.
A FAREWELL MESSAGE
After 13 years of providing a technology hub and information resources for area nonprofits, Northern Neck Connection will be disbanding and ending its services effective December 15, 2019. The nnconnection.org website, email, and facebook page will be discontinued on that date.
Northern Neck Connection began at a time when many small organizations did not even have a website. Our volunteer board and staff of one worked over the years to evolve and adapt our services from a directory of nonprofits to a fully-interactive platform to support the publicity and communications needs of more than 100 community groups. Now, however, with revolutions in public technology and social media, we are pleased to see that most local organizations are successfully creating and managing strong online presences on their own. We are also glad to recognize that more and more resources are being made available online to educate the nonprofit sector about governance, operations, funding, and other issues.
While we have decided to no longer maintain Northern Neck Connection as its own organization, we well understand the value of continuing to assess and serve nonprofit needs in our community. Fortunately, we have local partners who share our belief that when nonprofits work effectively and advocate for a culture of philanthropic engagement and support, the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula can be a stronger community with enhanced economic stability and high quality of life. We are truly pleased to announce that River Counties Community Foundation has agreed to take over some of our nonprofit excellence initiatives and to further incorporate nonprofit development into their own work. Watch for news from RCCF later in 2020 about new directions for the Nonprofit Seminar Series and an updated Nonprofit Directory/Catalog for Philanthropy.
Thank you for your many years of support and cooperation.
