September 9, 2020

In August 2020, Charleston Promise Neighborhood (CPN) was awarded $35,000 from Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation for core programmatic supports.

Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation is committed to funding nonprofit organizations with a focus area in education in order to develop the capacity of the future workforce, especially in the STEM-related and energy fields. CPN is pleased to be a recipient of their funds to bring STEM-based programs to four early childhood and elementary schools and to continue in its efforts to prepare a generation to be prosperous in the workforce, military, and/or continued education.

“We are honored to partner with, and be a recipient of this Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation grant award,” says CEO Sherrie Snipes-Williams. “Through generous investments such as this one, we will continue to provide students and families in our Neighborhood with the highest-quality, most-impactful programs, and resources they need to excel in school and at home. As CPN celebrates its 10th anniversary, we are excited to launch our next decade of work, supporting our community so that it can continue to experience growth and thrive!”
