Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation is a charitable organization created through gifts from many generous people. Community foundations operate in perpetuity, meaning the gifts made to the NCCF will continue to grow and provide resources for generations to come.
In addition, we identify current and emerging issues, stimulate resources to address those needs and help our community prepare for the future. Because our funds are held as endowments, contributions our donors make to NCCF are never spent. Our grants and awards come from the interest or income of our earnings, guaranteeing that our donors make a difference for generations to come.
