About Our Charity
The Cataraqui Region Conservation Foundation raises funds to assist with the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority's conservation education and land acquisition programs.
The Foundation has been the CRCA's fundraising arm for more than 40 years. The Foundation is a registered charitable organization with a formally-constituted board of directors and organization by-laws. The board elects its officers and maintains its records at the CRCA Administration Office in Kingston, Ontario. In 1994, the Foundation became a membership-based organization. Persons interested in the aims of the Foundation can make contributions to specific projects (for example, Partners-in-Education) and may purchase a tax-receiptable annual membership.
