CNCP is a collaborative initiative to help support nonprofit leaders and organizations in Chautauqua County. Launched in 2019, CNCP conducted a nonprofit assessment survey to provide insights across seven key competency areas, feedback was given on organizational strengths and opportunities for improvement. The next steps include designing a collective approach to capacity building in our county that will include both short-term and long-term goals. Immediate next steps were identified to help provide access and promote training opportunities for resources, tools and best practices across the seven major competency areas.
In response, several new resource pages have been developed on the Chautauqua Grants website:
- Nonprofit Resource Directory– linked to articles, tools and best practices across the seven major competency areas.
- Trainings, Workshop and Professional Development
- Other Regional Funding Opportunities
This work will also be connected with the regional efforts of the WNY Nonprofit Support Group that is working across nine of our neighboring counties.
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. Learn more about the initiative and participating nonprofits here.
