Give Big To CLN During Give Big CHQ

June 9, 2022


NEW Fundraising Objective – Class of 2023 DEI Scholarship

The Chautauqua Leadership Network (CLN) recognizes diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) to help ensure a prosperous future for all citizens of Chautauqua County. As such, broad opportunities exist to provide greater accessibility to the beneficial leadership training provided by CLN.

During Give Big CHQ, the Chautauqua Leadership Network is collecting donations towards a Class of 2023 DEI Scholarship to be announced this September.  Our goal is to help reduce barriers to join for a selected applicant(s) whose leadership vision empowers their community through DEI activities.

Class of 2023 DEI Scholarship will be awarded at the discretion of the CLN Board of Directors.
