Nonprofit News- email newsletter
In an effort to keep nonprofits up to date, a county-wide monthly e-newsletter was started to help share more information and resources such as grant funding opportunities, upcoming workshops, trainings and professional development opportunities in the sector.
This is intended for nonprofit executive directors, board members and staff. To be added to the contact list please email Noah Goodling firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WNY Nonprofit Support Group is a regional nonprofit capacity building initiative that is working across nine of our neighboring WNY counties. The group is led by a program director with the support of the WNY Foundation, Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, John R. Oishei Foundation, Health Foundation for Western and Central NY, Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, and the ESL Charitable Foundation.
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 nonprofits work. Launched in June 2020, local funders joined with other regional funders to sponsor nonprofit’s memberships for an 18-month period, which was renewed in 2021.
Under the umbrella of the WNY Nonprofit Support Group nine partnering organizations have convened as key intermediaries to be able to bring additional resources and expertise to nonprofits in the region. The intermediaries are currently focused on three initiatives: technology, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) trainings & resources, and a communications/ information exchange website for nonprofits.
