Cattaraugus Foundation

Where the Money Goes

Intandem Program Support

We have funded needed supplies and equipment, bridged funding gaps in programs such as Lifeskills, offset the costs of recreational activities, and supported SubCon’s work center

Community Partnerships

In partnership with the YMCA of the Twin Tiers and “Swizzy’s Cause,” we have assisted in funding a behavioral health care coordinator located at the Olean YMCA. This position was established in hopes of reaching more people with behavioral health concerns, in a comfortable environment. Learn More

Aid for Families We Support

We have helped a family leave a domestic violence situation, funded fences and shatter-proof windows for autistic children so they could play safely, and purchased leg braces for a child with cerebral palsy.

Funds for the “We Remember Committee”

We have provided funding to a group of volunteers who maintain the grave sites of 35 individuals who previously lived in our group homes.

Staff scholarships & focused trainings

The Foundation facilitates an annual program that gives staff the opportunity to expand their knowledge, skill set and implement new program initiatives

Employment Support for the People We Serve

We have provided funding for clothing for people to be presentable in job interviews, as well as short-term transportation support to allow people to sustain their job.

Abigail V. Dulmus Holiday Endowment


This restricted fund within the endowment at the Rehabilitation Foundation has been designated to provide an income to support annual holiday celebrations within the continuing day treatment programs Abby attended. In November 2008 the Abigail V. Dulmus Holiday Celebration Endowment was created by her family with an initial donation. This fund supports two things that she particularly loved – holidays and friends. The fund provides financial support for an array of CDT holiday celebrations throughout the year including Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Abby’s family chose this specific purpose because they knew how much joy she received from each and every holiday celebration and thought it would be a wonderful and fun way to honor her memory, and allow all of us to continue celebrating for her.

The beauty of this endowment is that Abby’s memory will continue in perpetuity to ensure a measure of celebration at holiday times that might not otherwise occur within these programs due to not-for-profit funding constraints. These modest holiday celebrations have a great meaning to those in Abby’s programs.

Barby Ried Social Fund at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation

This fund was established in memory of Barbara “Barby” Ried, a longtime SubCon employee.

One of Barby’s favorite parts of SubCon was attending the holiday parties and social events, inspiring her siblings’ decision to establish this fund after her passing in June of 2016. The Barby Ried Social Fund will provide annual grants, of up to $1,000 per year, to the SubCon division for holiday/social/entertainment activities and events to enhance the working experience of SubCon employees.

Donate to the Barby Ried Social Fund

We appreciate your generosity! Your gift allows us to carry out our mission of enhancing the lives of people with disabilities in the Cattaraugus, Allegany and Chautauqua County areas, every day.
