Nonprofit WIsh list

For the past 4 years, SCCF has worked with local nonprofits serving Steuben County to identify their greatest needs in time for Giving Tuesday. Last year, we heard stories of individuals who used these wish lists to donate toys and fund projects for nonprofits, delighted to see how they could make a difference. This year, we had 22 nonprofits participate! Browse this page to learn about their greatest needs, or click below to download a print-ready 11×17 PDF version of the list. You can also stop by the SCCF office to pick up a printed version if you want to post the wishlist in your church, office, or share with friends! If you’d like to make a gift, we encourage you to reach out to the nonprofit directly using the contact information listed.
