NCCR Supports NCCF

#NYGivesDay is a day dedicated to giving back to nonprofits throughout New York State by way of a 24-hour fundraising challenge that works to raise awareness, build support, and increase shared philanthropy throughout communities that span the vast state of New York.

Community foundation grantThe Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation has been a firm supporter of Northern Chautauqua Canine Rescue over recent years. Through their Community Grants Program NCCR has been awarded money to complete both the interior and exterior fencing for the new isolation room, and a new roof over the exterior back door of the shelter. Both of these awards have helped us make our shelter better, safer, and more “user’ friendly for both canines and humans. NCCF also has a presence throughout the year at various community events, and they ask the public to list their favorite local non-profit on a slip of paper that goes in to a raffle box. One slip is chosen by the Foundation, to receive a check for $100. Our shelter has been lucky enough to receive a check quite a few times.

Without organizations like NCCF, we would not be able to accomplish our goals, so please come out this Tuesday the 28th and help the Foundation ( raise funds so  they are able to continue to fund local non-profits like ours, so we can all continue to do the much needed work we do!
