COVID-19 Response Fund for Cattaraugus County

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, the Dr. Lyle F. Renodin Foundation and the United Way of Cattaraugus County are engaging in a collaborative effort with other area funding and government agencies to deliver a coordinated philanthropic response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Cattaraugus County.

A centralized fund has been created to deploy flexible resources to community-based nonprofit organizations working with communities that are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, the economic consequences of the outbreak and community and organizational recovery.
