Nonprofit organizations located in Chautauqua County can now register for Give Big CHQ, a 24-hour, online fundraising event scheduled for June 9.

Hosted by the Chautauqua Region and Northern Chautauqua Community Foundations, with support from The Capacity Lab, Give Big CHQ has generated more than $1 million to directly benefit more than 100 nonprofits since 2018.

“Give Big CHQ is an easy way for local nonprofits to raise essential dollars for their mission while being part of a fun, engaging community event,” said Leslie Wille, Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation community engagement coordinator.

By registering for Give Big CHQ, nonprofits create an individual fundraising page that is displayed alongside other nonprofit organizations from throughout Chautauqua County. All dollars raised directly benefit the organization.

In addition to raising dollars and being part of a community event, Give Big CHQ has also helped nonprofits reimagine their yearlong fundraising efforts while providing the necessary support services to ensure the organization’s long-term sustainability.

“Over the past five years, we have seen an increase in how nonprofits interact with their donor base to build lasting relationships,” said Liz Jones, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation community impact officer. “Many of the tools and strategies they utilize during Give Big CHQ has carried into their everyday work.”

As giving days across the country evolve into a powerful trend to rally people around a specific region or cause, the Chautauqua Region and Northern Chautauqua Community Foundations continue to grow the reach of Give Big CHQ.
