Community Knights is a 501c3 grantmaking organization that awards grants on a quarterly basis from funds raised through weekly Bingo Fundraisers. To date, they have awarded $642,000 to nonprofits and school-based organizations! NetworkPeninsula is grateful to be one of the organizations recently awarded a grant!
DID YOU KNOW? This incredible grantmaking initiative is only made possible thanks to volunteers who come from all over the Virginia Peninsula to work side by side to raise the funds that are awarded. Bingo games are held on Wednesdays and Sundays. If you have a group of volunteers (youth group, school group, civic group, etc), any size, who are age 16 and older and willing to contribute their time to this great community effort benefiting local nonprofits and school organizations, please click here for more information and to sign up. All volunteers are welcome! They can't do it without you and nonprofits can't do the valuable work they do without funding opportunities like these!
