On May 29,2015 Conexus was awarded a challenge grant in the amount of $114,500 from the Cabell Foundation. The award was a 1:1 matching grant, challenging Conexus to raise a matching $114,500 from a diverse range of supporters within one year of the award. Conexus was able to secure the final portion of the match in late April, completing the challenge requirement.
The capital funds raised through this effort have been and are being used to finalize the last portion of the office renovation, which included replacing one of the failing HVAC systems, purchasing additional technology for the field and back end office support, and adding a vehicle to our fleet, allowing us to replace an aging 1998 Ford van. Conexus is excited to expand Visiocheck and technology based programming into the community and use these resources to position the organization for next steps.
