CRCF is a philanthropic organization with a mission to enrich the quality of life in the Chautauqua Region.

CRCF is comprised of a collection of many separate endowment funds established by individual donors, families, charitable organizations and businesses.
5. Can gifts be added to an established fund?
Yes, once a fund is established, any amount may be added to that particular fund, or any other fund at CRCF, at any time. Some donors add yearly, some for special occasions and some will designate funds in their wills. As a note, you do not have to have a fund established to make donations to funds at CRCF.
