NCCF announces Community Grants deadline Sept. 1

The Northern Chautau-qua Community Found-ation will accept letters of interest to its Community Benefit Grant program until Sept. 1.

Letters of interest should include a brief project description, the estimated number of people to be impacted and the amount of funding requested. Letters should not exceed two pages and electronic submission is encouraged.

After the Grants Com-mittee reviews each letter of interest, selected organizations will be asked to submit a full application.

Twice a year (March and September) the NCCF considers grant proposals from non-profit organizations that serve the community. Eligible applicants must be IRS designated 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. The awards are made possible due to the many generous donors who have established Community Benefit Funds at the NCCF.

For additional information, contact Eileen Dunn, Program Coordinator at 366-4892 or edunn@nccfoundation.org

The Northern Chautau-qua Community Founda-tion was incorporated in 1986 as a tax-exempt charitable organization. Since its establishment, the NCCF has distributed over $9.1 million into the community through its various grant programs. It is an organization inherently committed to furthering its mission of enriching the northern Chautauqua community and encouraging local philanthropy.
