POTTER COUNTY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR THE TWIN TIERS ANNUAL DINNER

Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) will hold its annual dinner on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015 at the Ulysses Fire Hall, with a 6 p.m.. Dinner will be followed by Potter County fund highlights and the presentation of several grants to Potter County non-profits.

Attendees all receive one ticket at the event for a drawing, and the individuals whose names are drawn will each have the opportunity to choose a non-profit to delegate as their grant recipient. All county non-profits are encouraged to get as many of their board members and supporters as possible to attend the celebration in order to increase their chances of getting one of the $500 grants. The Northeastern Potter Economic Development Association grant(s) will also be awarded this evening.

The Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers is a vehicle for individuals, families, businesses, and local non-profits to set up endowment funds to provide income now and forever. Most charitable gifts are spent immediately, but an endowment provides a revenue stream “For Good … For Ever.” Grants are provided into perpetuity and invest in long term solution versus a temporary fix that only provides a band aid to ever changing community needs.

Currently, twenty three endowment funds exist at CFTT to benefit Potter County. This is up from just eight funds last year. All these funds put money back into the community through grants that benefit a variety of needs. One purpose of the this dinner is to acquaint people with the many different types of funds and the opportunity to add to existing funds to help them grow, or to create specific new endowment funds to benefit local causes close to their heart.

Tickets to the event are $25 and are available at Olga’s CafĂ© in Coudersport or Olney Funeral Home in Ulysses. For more information, contact CFTT at 570-888-4759 or Benjamin at 814-848-7542 locally, or e-mail cftt@stny.rr.com or brolney@hotmail.com.
