An initiative of the WNY Nonprofit Support Group, Catchafire is an online platform that matches nonprofit organizations and their projects with skilled, mission-minded professionals who want to support and contribute to the work of nonprofits. Launched in June 2020, several local funders joined with other regional funders to sponsor nonprofit’s memberships for an 18-month period.

In our new, remote environment Catchafire is uniquely positioned to bring valuable expertise to nonprofits. The program connects nonprofits with talented professionals looking to give back, allowing nonprofits to access expertise in areas such as marketing, web development, operations, strategy and more. Participating organizations create a profile, begin posting projects from Catchafire’s menu of 120+ pre-scoped projects. From there nonprofits can review up to three applications at a time, and interview volunteer candidates prior to deciding on a match for their project.
To date over 30 nonprofit organizations in Chautauqua County have been invited to participate. Visit the WNYNSG Catchafire website to view participating nonprofits, posted projects and more information.
Participating nonprofits have access to support from Catchafire, interactive live events or pre-recorded webinar sessions. Additionally, a SLACK channel is hosted for members to share ideas, resources, hear from experts and connect with peers in the sector.
