Donate to CRD


Have you ever wondered how you can get a scholarship to attend a program? How does CRD get the funds to give out scholarships to members? The answer is easy. Through generous donations from members.

CRD has several ways you can help the organization grow. Donations to scholarship funds help CRD give back to its members by allowing them to attend professional development opportunities they might not have a chance to participate in due to budget cuts and constraints. Many of our members have benefited from scholarships.

If you're interested in making CRD a part of your estate planning, then we have the Cornerstone Legacy Society. Find out how to ensure the continued future of CRD through your bequest.

Your donation allows these funds to grow and give a CRD member a chance to learn, network and enhance their skills to help them do their job. All donations are tax deductible.

Our staff believe in connecting people, resources and opportunities. CRD helps us drive these actions by providing tools and training so we can educate our board and volunteers, strengthen our skills and knowledge base, and find support and mentoring from our peers throughout the country. We're steeped in the culture to thank our donors, and now is a chance to turn around and thank CRD and all its members for helping us be successful in building a strong and committed group of donors and volunteers. Thanks CRD!"
