CRCF accepting grant applications for nonprofit community projects

OLEAN, N.Y., October 6, 2016— Grant applications for the fall funding cycle of the Community Fund at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation are due November 1.

“The Community Fund is an unrestricted fund that allows the foundation’s board to approve grants that help meet changing community needs,” said CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit. “The grants, typically between $100 and $2,000, help nonprofit organizations fund important projects that have a significant positive effect on our region.”

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations.

CRCF’s board reviews applications based on the applying organization’s stability, the impact its work has on the community, the feasibility of the project proposed in the grant application and the role a grant from the Community Fund would play in the overall project, Ms. Buchheit noted.

CRCF makes grants from the Community Fund in November and May every year.

This summer CRCF made grants to three local projects: the Cattaraugus County Health Department for its Veggie Mobile initiative, Franklinville’s Blount Memorial Library for an author self-publishing class and Lutheran Social Services for its Foster Grandparent Program. Together, the three grants totaled $3,900.

Applications are available online at under the grant seekers tab. Contact CRCF with any additional questions at 716-301-2723 or

Established in 1994, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation is growing good by connecting donors to the causes they care about most in the region.
