CJP strives to build partnerships that help to keep community organizations strong. To achieve this, we focus on six primary areas of organizational health: Finance, Professional Leadership and Strategy, Development/Fundraising, Board Governance, Marketing, and Infrastructure. We are pleased to provide resources, links to trusted websites, tools, and templates to help your organization with these areas.

Visit our Partner Organization Resource page for helpful links, tools, and information to support organizations during this time.
