Much of what we are able to do as an Association is possible because of those who help sponsor special events. Our ability to help fellow alumni, support our former home and hold reunions would not be possible without the generous contributions of these companies and individuals. Please express your gratitude and support

Dallas Gathering Reflections

   The 2018 Dallas Gathering is history and it was historic.  Brad Powell of Crazy Cowboy's again provided the steak dinners and Britt Hammond again provided the entertainment.  Dennis Linam videoes the event and posted it on the Facebook page and Tony Wade provided Auction Items and made the Gun Raffle a huge success.

  About 70 alumni and family members attended and had a fantastic time.  We had a quickly-put-together auction at the event which raise about $2,500 for the Association. 

   One story.  One alum from 30+ years back saw another alum from his dorm.  He was so glad to see him again and grateful for support provided when he was a kid at the Ranch, he purchased an auction item for him before leaving.  Tears were shed.  We are family and these family gatherings bring us together!

 Leaving a Legacy



   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?
