Who We Are
CNA was founded in November, 2004 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit. Membership is open to all residents of Cambridgeport, parents of children who attend Cambridgeport schools, owners of Cambridgeport businesses, and those involved in the Cambridgeport neighborhood.

We've won 2 grants
from the National Trust Preservation Funds for the architecture work at St. Augustine's: one for $2.5k and another for $15k!
Cambridgeport's own St. Augustine's African Orthodox Church (137 Allston St.) has been awarded a second $50k matching grant from the Cambridge Historical Commission. The money will be used toward restoration of the siding, windows, and for ADA accessibility. The roof is being redone now.
The CNA is fundraising to help with this historical preservation project in our neighborhood. In addition to the grant, the CHC will match all donations for up to $50k in additional funds.
