Charlottesville Civic Action – Nonprofits can apply now for messaging help and exhibit opportunity

Created as a partnership between the

Charlottesville Community Design Center

and the

Center for Nonprofit Excellence


Charlottesville Civic Action

is an open challenge to local nonprofit organizations to address the following question:

“What is the most promising opportunity to strengthen our community over the next decade, and what action will your organization take to make a difference?”

Of those who respond, up to 10 organizations will be selected to create a poster, with complimentary graphic design help, that creatively illustrates who they are and how their organization chose to respond to the question. Selected organizations will get expert help to develop a messaging
campaign articulating the nonprofit’s action plan.

The posters will be featured in a public exhibition hosted in the CCDC
exhibit gallery in June and July of 2010.

There is no fee to enter –
interested non-profits have until May 3, 2010 to

apply online


Charlottesville Tomorrow

sees this effort as a great way to help the local nonprofit sector boost its capacity to implement positive change, get some free publicity, and attract the attention of local officials about their work.
