Welcome to Crown Family Philanthropies

In 2009, after more than 60 years of family grantmaking under the name Arie and Ida Crown Memorial, Crown Family Philanthropies (CFP) was developed to represent an array of family grantmaking practices.

Our program areas include the Arts, Civic Affairs, Education, Environmental, Health, Human Services and Jewish causes. Dividing our philanthropic investments into the program areas listed above, all applicants must meet the basic as well as program-specific guidelines to be considered for funding. We have built the CFP model on a social contract of engagement, trust, and collective participation of family members to address aspirations for social change.
