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.

"One of the best decisions I ever made was joining CRD. When I began my career as the development officer for Panola College in 2001, I had no experience in fundraising. I had a lot of questions, and when I needed help the leadership and members of this organization were more than happy to provide it. Their willingness to take time to help someone they had never met still amazes me to this day, and that is why I am proud to be a member of the CRD."
