This site is made possible through the generous support of our funders and sponsors. Site creation was made possible with a 2004 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Since then, thanks to our other funders, supporters and site users, we have been able to maintain and grow the site. In 2012 we are undertaking a major site renovation (now in progress) thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, a very dear and special supporter of the Community Network Journey Project since it’s inception. Thanks one and all for your ongoing support so greatly appreciated!
