QENO is working with UNC Wilmington leadership and our partners to create a strategy that allows us to continue to serve southeastern North Carolina’s nonprofit sector. We ask for your patience as we develop a strategy that keeps your safety as a top priority. In the coming days and weeks, we will be asking you to help us create a strategy that works best for YOU, adheres to UNC System and UNCW mandates, and allows us to support your changing priorities and needs during this time. 

For upcoming trainings, please remain patient as we look at our options for alternatives to in-person classes and meetings. In the interest of transparency, we hope to have an action plan outlined and posted on our website within the next few days. 

For UNCW updates and resources, please visit the UNCW’s Coronavirus Information site at: https://uncw.edu/coronavirus/index.html. 

All QENO updates will be shared on our website, social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn), and email newsletter. 

The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits has created a comprehensive set of resources to assist nonprofit organizations in crafting their response to COVID-19. These resources can be found here: https://www.ncnonprofits.org/resources/pandemicresources 

We will be sending more updates as soon as we have them. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and especially for the work that you do to better our communities.
