Letters should not exceed two pages in length and submitted through e-mail to eardillo@nccfoundation.org.

The Community Grants program considers grant proposals from nonprofit organizations twice a year (March and September). In 2019, the NCCF’s Community Grants Program distributed $151,467 in grants to 26 nonprofit organizations. The Community Benefit program is made possible through the generosity of community donors who have established NCCF unrestricted funds.

The NCCF, incorporated in 1986, is a tax-exempt charitable organization. Since its establishment, the NCCF has distributed more than $16 million to the community through its various grant programs. It is an organization inherently committed to enriching the northern Chautauqua community and encouraging local philanthropy.
