Partnership for Nonprofit Excellence

The Partnership for Nonprofit Excellence (PNE) is an affiliation of four programs that provide nonprofits in Central Virginia with the tools they need to improve their effectiveness and efficiency for greater impact.  The programs provide a comprehensive support system so nonprofits collaborate successfully, employ best practices and gain access to a wealth of volunteers.  By opening the door to resources such as project management expertise, communication tools and ongoing professional development, PNE helps nonprofits achieve their mission.

Among the services that will be offered locally through PNE, Organizational Solutions will work with selected Cameron Foundation grantees to support their capacity building work through two tracks:

  • Standards for Excellence – a national initiative to promote the highest standards of nonprofit governance, management, and operations. Standards for Excellence provide organizations with a framework for self-assessing their needs based upon a best practices model and include tools and model policies to assist with implementation.
  • Organizational Improvement Process – provides a deep dive assessment, working one-on-one with a consultant to determine organizational strengths and to create a comprehensive capacity building plan.  This more intensive track will be implemented with a cohort of organizations selected by The Cameron Foundation.
