About CRO

Since 2007, The Cliffs Residents Outreach (CRO), a 501(c)3, nonprofit corporation, has been committed to the mission of “Providing resources to regional children that promote opportunities for lifelong success.” While we support a wide variety of student programs, our focus centers on funding initiatives that relate to education and human services.

CRO is comprised of four branches which represent the Cliffs’ Communities of Glassy, Valley/Mt. Park, Vineyards, and Falls/Springs. Representatives from these branches serve as Directors of the CRO Corporate Board. The branches work independently to support the needs of their local schools through fundraising and volunteering, all aligning with one consistent message – kids first.

The success of CRO is measured by the many benefits we have provided to our community school students. Through the generosity of our residents and community service partners, and the services of our committed volunteers, we have seen great things happen in our local schools.
