CPCAN is Awarded Second Knight Foundation Capicity Building Grant

Volunteer Coordinator to Evolve into Development Director Position

The CPCAN was awarded a capacity building grant this past November 2012 to fund a part time Development Director position. The Development Director position has evolved from the Volunteer Coordinator which the Knight Foundation funded last December. In the expansion of this role the Development Director will continue to recruit, train and coordinate community volunteers and assist with development efforts to build and expand programming.

This award will assist the CPCAN in its mission by continuing to broaden our volunteer base and further develop sustainability to assist in our mission. We thank the James A. & Faith Knight Foundation for this award and their dedication to investing in our community’s most precious resource – our children.
