The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) is accepting Letters of Interest to the Community Benefit Grant program until September 1, 2019.
The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) recognizes the generosity of Sara Baker Michalak, a local artist with a passion for the environment, for her recent donation. Earlier this year the Fredonia Technology Incubator was host to her latest show: Metaphysical, an exhibition of mixed media paintings and collages. Sara donated a portion of the sales from this exhibit to the NCCF’s Northern Chautauqua Environmental Fund.
The Board of Directors of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation recently approved 17 grants from two programs totaling $69,389. Both the Community Grants Program and the Community Pride Program are funded through the NCCF’s 70 Community Benefit Funds. Individuals, families, and organizations who have a strong interest in the well-being of the community have established these endowed funds.
The board, staff, and volunteers at the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation thank everyone who came out on March 23 to our record-breaking Applebee’s Flapjack Breakfast Fundraiser! We successfully raised over $2,400 to support our Service Learning Mini-Grant Program. Grants awarded from this program support middle and high school teachers in all northern Chautauqua County school districts by encouraging them to promote community service in the classroom.
The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) is currently accepting applications for the Reverend Clifford K. Cliver and Lucy Cliver Sumsky Scholarship. Reverend Cliver established this scholarship in 2015 to provide higher education financial assistance to adults who spent time in the foster care system as a child.
