Local School Districts Benefit from Flapjacks

Local School Districts Benefit from Flapjacks

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.

NCCF asks, “Whose footprints do you strive to follow?”

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) is personally inviting you to submit a nomination for the 2019 George B. Weaver Jr. Footprints Award.  As a resident of northern Chautauqua County, you see the good that happens in this area. Please look around your community and nominate the individual or couple whose philanthropy is worthy of recognition – someone who has left those footprints that we should all strive to follow. It is not a requirement that nominees have an affiliation with the NCCF.
