NCCF Hosting Monthly Nonprofit Brown Bag Networking Lunches

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) invites local nonprofits to the Project BICEP Nonprofit Brownbag Networking Lunches on the first Tuesday of every month. The first brown bag lunch, held in March, was attended by representatives of ten different nonprofit organizations.

Lunches are an open forum opportunity for individuals to share ideas, explore funding opportunities, brainstorm ways to share resources, and to discuss topics relevant to the nonprofit climate of Chautauqua County.  Additional ideas for the brown bag lunches included guest speakers and educational topics of interest.

During the May 2nd and November 9th lunches, members of the Youth Services Integration Committees are invited to attend and convene their meeting following the group discussion.  The next brown bag lunch is Tuesday, April 4, from 12 - 1:30 p.m.  All organizations are encouraged to attend. Bring your lunch and be a part of the conversation. NCCF will provide beverages.
