Thu, Aug 18th 2022 03:25 pm

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation will conclude its 2022 Nonprofit Link and Learn webinar series on September 19 with “Cattaraugus Gives by the Numbers,” led by Cattaraugus Gives Coordinator Kirk Windus.

In this session, Windus will review the data behind the successful 2021 installment of Cattaraugus Gives, a day of giving for nonprofits in Cattaraugus County. In 2021, Cattaraugus Gives nonprofits raised $358,772 for their respective causes.

During the session, to be held from noon to 1p.m. via Zoom, attendees will review analytics from the 2021 event to inform how to lead the best possible giving day campaign during this year’s event. Attendees will learn how matches, challenges and peer-to-peer fundraisers can boost their fundraising and drive maximum engagement.

Registration for the session is open at cattfoundation.org/nonprofit-link-and-learn-series.
