Sign on to Stabilize Child Care - 1 in 3 child care programs are not able to re-open due to the pandemic – that’s 450,000 slots for VA’s kids! If you believe and agree that child care in VA needs to be stabilized so working families can support the economy and our children have safe places for care and education, please consider signing on to this letter to the General Assembly asking them to allow $80m of the $1.3 CARES funding still available – things are moving fast, so PLEASE sign this as soon as possible by clicking here.

NetworkPeninsula is proud to launch FACES – Framework for Action to Center Equity in our Sector.

The FACES program will focus on centering equity in our sector and identifying and creating actionable steps for change. The program will involve multiple components, including:

  • collection of data on racial and other demographics in our sector (including staff, leaders, boards, and donors)
  • a series of online group conversations for nonprofit leaders to gauge/reflect where they are on this issue
  • analysis of the survey data in comparison with racial demographics from the communities we serve
  • discussion and identification of gaps and work to be done
  • an in-depth series for nonprofit leaders interested in creating actionable steps to address inequity in our sector.

Board Match Up Program

Are you interested in serving on a nonprofit Board? We can help match up your interests, skills, and availability with a nonprofit in need! Once a match is identified, we make the connection and then leave you to continue the conversation and discern whether it is a good fit for you. To learn more and to complete a questionnaire, click here.
We have curated additional Resources for Education and Action to help better understand the issues around inequity and racism in our communities and in the nonprofit sector. These first steps are steps we are committed to taking as we plan upcoming conversations, trainings, and actions to address these issues together.
We are grateful for Our Partners who make our programs possible. To join our Networked Communityclick here!
