What is CNCP?
The Chautauqua Nonprofit Capacity Partnership (CNCP) is a collaborative initiative to help support nonprofit leaders and organizations in Chautauqua County. CNCP’s focus will be working with nonprofit executive directors and board members to deepen the understanding of current opportunities and needs. The initiative’s ultimate goal is to work collectively with nonprofit partners to develop a strategy to help strengthen the overall sector.
Who is behind CNCP?
This initiative is being led by the Chautauqua Funders Group (CFG) represented by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, Ralph C. Sheldon Foundation, United Way of Northern Chautauqua County, United Way of Southern Chautauqua County and the Winifred Crawford Dibert Foundation. Additionally, the initiative has been supported by the Gebbie Foundation, Lenna Foundation and the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation.
The group has partnered with Community Wealth Partners (CWP), a consulting organization with deep experience in understanding and supporting nonprofit capacity building to help facilitate and administer the first phase of work that will start in September 2019.
How can area nonprofits participate?
CNCP will engage with a select group of area nonprofits to participate in organizational assessments and focus groups.
