Nonprofit Events

SCCF is launching a series of nonprofit capacity building events. We'll be offering nonprofit leaders a chance to learn together about challenges like:

  • social media marketing

  • board development

  • ...and creating a fundraising plan


We'll also be hosting some less formal networking events for nonprofits to create collaborative relationships. Keep an eye out for updates on this page, in our nonprofit network newsletter and on our Facebook page!

As a thank-you to Steuben County's nonprofit community, SCCF invites our local nonprofit leaders to attend a networking event at Scoops, Ice Cream. SCCF will pay for the ice cream in exchange for the sharing of ideas about ways we can all work together to make our community better. Come prepared to talk about your organization's programming, challenges, and big dreams for the future! This will be an informal event with just one agenda item: build connections with other nonprofit leaders.
