Cal Farley's Boys Ranch Alumni Association
at no cost to you!
Veterans Memorial Project
We usually recognize our reunion and other sponsors in this space. Not having a reunion, scholarship fundraiser or other gatherings this year, we have had not sponsors to recognize. And still the work goes on. Your Alumni Association continues to help you send your children to college. Your Alumni Association continues to help your brothers and sisters in crisis situations. Your Alumni Association continues to help you stay in touch with one another. Your Alumni Association continues to encourage and help those of you who are residing in the Alumni Support Center. Your Alumni Association continues to support the work of Cal Farley's Boys Ranch. Your Alumni Association continues to do Good Work.
To be a member of Your Alumni Association all you need to do is correspond with us and pay annual dues of a mere $20. There are those who contribute monthly, and there are those who partner with their employer to contribute significantly. Cal Farley's is the largest single supporter of Your Alumni Association. But remember that this is Your Alumni Association. Your participation and support are VITAL to the Good Work done by Your Alumni Association. Thank you for being a part of the Good Work Your Alumni Association get to do!
The Cal Farley's Boys Ranch Alumni Association Foundation (CFBRAAF) was established to Carry On His Work to Future Generations. We have all been recipients of the gifts of others, and we are committed to being, not just takers, but givers. The Foundation has been the key to the long-term effective service of Cal Farley's. While many other child care institutions have come and gone, Cal Farley's has been stable and effective through all kinds of economic changes, primarily because of the foundation Cal Farley established. The Alumni Association has followed that example and established a foundation to carry on the good work done by past and present former Ranchers to future generations.
In the first five years, 84 contributors became Founding Legacy Partners. They established the foundation for the foundation. Since that time, all donors who contribute at least $1,000 over a five-year period becomes a Legacy Partner. You can see to the left additional levels of Legacy Partnerships.
Another way to leave a legacy is by making a benefactor gift commitment. Some former Ranchers have named the CFBRAAF in their will to carry on the work. The following link takes you to a form you can use to set up a Benefactor Gift Commitment to the Alumni Association Foundation.
We have all been blessed, some much more than others. We have benefited by the generosity of those who have left a legacy, folks we will only be able to thank in glory. Now it's our turn to leave a legacy to future generations. Won't you leave a legacy too?
