NCCF Acknowledges Gift from Local Artist

NCCF Acknowledges Gift from Local Artist

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.

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.
