Support CRS

Endowment

Over the years, our strong community of alumni and friends has made endowment gifts to secure CRS' future and provide stimulating programs for our 4- to 14-year-old students. The general endowment has grown from $60,000 in 1980 to over $7.5 million, thanks to generous gifts and bequests from our community.
