The Cape Royal Community Foundation (CRCF) was founded in 2002 to meet the charitable goals of the residents of Cape Royal. It is a non-profit organization and a Federally approved 501(c)(3). CRCF has no paid employees or Board Members. It is a volunteer organization with minimal overhead.
The mission of the CRCF is to make a larger impact on smaller local causes and to synthesize the wishes of donors through flexible, continuous and targeted giving.
