COMMUNITY KNIGHTS is a 501c3 grant making organization that awards grants to local nonprofits and schools on a quarterly basis from funds raised through weekly Bingo Fundraisers. To date, they have awarded $642,000!
This incredible grant making 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 OR a group of volunteers (youth group, school group, civic group, etc) are age 16 or older and willing to contribute time to this great community effort benefiting local nonprofits and school organizations, please sign up. All are welcome! They can't do it without you and nonprofits can't do the valuable work they do without funding opportunities like these! To volunteer, click here.
We saved the best, and most important topic, for last! Last Friday, we held the 5th installment of our
Board Development Series, on. "Understanding the Fiduciary Responsibilities of Board Members." We are happy to report that we had 13 Board members in attendance, along with another 13 nonprofit staff. We asked attendees what their biggest "aha" moment was and here's what a few said:
"Fiduciary responsibility of board members is probably the most least understood responsibility of board members."
"...the importance of having Board members sign documents for Ethics, Conflicts of Interest & Confidentiality."
And that's why we are here!
NetworkPeninsula is committed to helping nonprofits build their capacity to remain sustainable. Having knowledgeable, productive, and committed Board members is key to that sustainability! To learn more about our

We are grateful for the support of Our Partners that help make our programs possible!
