COVID-19: The Nonprofit Sector Responds

COVID-19 Information

The Nonprofit Center takes the health and wellness of our community very seriously. The spread of COVID-19 is a rapidly-evolving situation. While we will make every effort to provide current information, please defer to guidance from government and public health authorities related to any closures of public facilities.

Our Offices and Programs

As of March 16, 2020 we made substantial changes to our programming.

  • We have suspended all Members-Only Convenings for the remainder of March and April. This includes:
    • CEO Confidential, Communications, Data & Impact, Development, Management Matters, and Operations
  • We are converting all remaining events in the months of March, April, and May to virtual events. Call-in and web-based options are available. Updated details will be sent the registrants of each event. Decisions about events beyond May will be announced as early as possible and will be based on the best information available from local, state, and national health experts, as well as any directives from city or state officials.
  • Our office staff is fully virtual as of Monday, March 16, 2020, and we have closed our physical office to visitors until further notice. We are still available during our regular office hours of Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, via phone, email, and virtual meetings. Please reach out to us if we can be of assistance. Our main phone number is 904-425-1182.
  • We will continue to post key announcements on this webpage, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

We realize that many of our member nonprofits and stakeholders provide critical services to some of the most vulnerable members of our community and will continue their daily work. We are deeply grateful for your continued service to our community.  Please be safe and stay healthy; without you, we cannot fulfill our mission.
