CRCF to host Cattaraugus Gives Link and Learn Seminar

Fri, Sep 1st 2023 02:00 pm

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation will hold its final Nonprofit Link and Learn Seminar of the year, “Cattaraugus Gives by the Numbers,” led by Cattaraugus Gives coordinator and CRCF Executive Director on Friday, September 22.

The session will help nonprofit professionals and volunteers learn more about how to get the most out of their fundraising efforts during this year’s Cattaraugus Gives program through an analysis of fundraising data from the 2022 Cattaraugus Gives event.

Attendees will learn how to make data-informed decisions to plan best marketing and fundraising practices for this year’s Cattaraugus Gives event, a day of giving for the Cattaraugus County region, presented by CRCF since 2017.

The session will be held on September 22 from 12 – 1 p.m. at the Laine Place building, 301 North Union St. in the third-floor Carney Training Room.

Cattaraugus Gives is set to take place on Tuesday, November 28, 2023. Led by CRCF, Cattaraugus Gives is a 24-hour online fundraising event joining nonprofits from across the Cattaraugus County community in both competition and collaboration. In 2022, Cattaraugus Gives eclipsed the milestone of raising over $1 million for area nonprofits since 2019.

88 participating nonprofits together raised over $275,000 last year.

Windus has led Cattaraugus Gives since its infancy, increasing annual nonprofit participation by nearly triple since the program’s first year.

Windus has spoken in a number of workshops and seminars on giving days, advising and encouraging other giving day leaders. He has also been featured on podcasts in order to share tips and guidance with aspiring giving day leaders.

“It is always exciting to talk about Cattaraugus Gives, which has been my joy to lead through my time at CRCF,” said Windus. “For CRCF, Cattaraugus Gives has become an important part of our work in philanthropy in this community, and it has had such an incredible impact. I encourage any interested nonprofit to attend and learn more about how Cattaraugus Gives can help take their organization’s fundraising to the next level.”

The workshop will be held in-person only.
