Cazenovia As residents of Cazenovia plan their year-end charitable giving, Project CAFE hopes they’ll keep them near the top of their lists.
Faced with a steady decline in funding from state and federal grants, Project CAFÉ hopes to maintain its same high-quality programming for the community by reaching out to local donors.
The good news is that a generous supporter has offered a $5,000 matching-grant challenge.
Every donation of at least $250 received will be matched up to a total of $5,000.
Successfully meeting this challenge would stem the tide of lost grant revenues for the next two years while Project CAFÉ pursues other long-term funding strategies. Donations of all sizes are welcome and sincerely appreciated but please consider this tremendous opportunity for residents to double their money if they have the means.
Project CAFÉ provides after-school programming, leadership training, community service opportunities, mentoring and drug- and alcohol-free activities for youth in the greater Cazenovia area. Its student leaders play a major role in carrying out major community events such as the Winter Festival, Earth Day Clean-up, July 4th Parade, 9/11 Observance and the Annual Toy Shop.
Project CAFÉ, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with all donations deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Checks may be made payable to “Project CAFÉ” and sent to PO Box 408, Cazenovia, NY 13035.
