ReImagine CVA
What We’re Doing
As our environment continues to change in response to the pandemic and social inequities arising from institutional racism, we want to invite you to reimagine the ways we can connect nonprofits, volunteers, donors, and the community to one another in the Central Virginia region. ReImagineCVA is THE place for learning about and engaging with nonprofits and community organizations doing important work in Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, and Orange.

This site is designed to be a resource that informs the community of all the different ways to become involved with the social sector, driving board members and volunteers to where they are needed and connecting donors to the causes and initiatives that need their support. Together we can ReImagineCVA and work toward a collective vision that brings about sustainable change in our region so that all community members can thrive.
Our Partners
Center for Nonprofit Excellence
CNE believes that strong nonprofits create strong communities. CNE helps nonprofits do their best work by providing education, consulting, and resources to support strong leaders, effective organizations, and healthy collaborations. CNE also believes in and advocates for a strong, independent nonprofit sector. We respect and nurture the sector so it can do the important and challenging work of creating a social safety net, driving equity initiatives, protecting the environment, and enriching us through arts, education, and culture.
The Equity Center
The Equity Center is the University of Virginia’s newest collaborative multi-disciplinary center, established in August 2019. The Equity Center tangibly redresses racial and socioeconomic inequality in university communities by advancing a transformative approach to universities’ fundamental research mission, which will in turn reform institutional values, pedagogy, and operations. Specifically, the Equity Center will change the way that University of Virginia (UVA) scholars interact with members of the surrounding community, replacing a model that has been extractive with one that is respectful and collaborative and conducts research that benefits communities. This approach will be a model for institutions of higher education domestically and globally to leverage their anchor positions in local communities to eradicate racial and socioeconomic inequity.
Thriving Communities Group
Thriving Communities Group supports organizations who believe institutions can work together better in creating a common good. We do so by equipping their communities with data design and digital resources that grow long lasting foundations of thought partnership through interactive data mapping and storytelling. We are founded by researchers with big hearts, at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (IASC) at the University of Virginia in 2012. Since then we've supported community foundations and collective impact groups across the country from Raleigh - to Memphis - to Oklahoma City - to Waco, TX. Every day we believe and strive to design and bring data for the common good to empower those who want to help make this world more fair, collaboratively intelligent, and thriving.
The United Way of Greater Charlottesville
The United Way of Greater Charlottesville is committed to a strong, equitable community where every person can thrive. Through financial stability and school readiness programs and innovative partnerships, we work to break down systemic barriers so that all individuals and families can achieve their potential.
