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

CFBRAA was chartered to carry on the work begun in the lives of troubled kids by Cal Farley's Boys Ranch.  It has grown to include former residents of Girlstown.  The Charter identifies the purpose as:

1 - To supply aid and assistance in promoting the growth of Cal Farley's Boys Ranch and the accomplishment of the objectives as set out in its Articles of Incorporation;

 2 - To create and promote a closer relationship between its (Cal Farley's) former students and to facilitate a quicker and easier adjustment for its graduates and other former students to community life.

The Association works to provide assistance for former residents of BR and GT: (a) in crisis support, (b) in education for family members, and (c) in maintaining family ties.  Further the Association seeks to promote and support the work of Cal Farley's Inc

 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?
