Not For Profit Resource Center

Services and Funding for Alliances

For eligible alliances, the Not For Profit Resource Center provides free facilitation, and, through the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County Fund For Alliances, transitional funding. Facilitation is not a prerequisite for funding. Awards depend on the cost and complexity of the project. Some projects are still in progress. For more information, please contact us at 887-2757 or
