A gift to CGR is an investment in the communities we serve.

One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

CGR’s Fund for the Public Interest remains our vehicle for building on that legacy and fulfilling its vision. As a 501(c)(3) not for profit, we apply a portion of our revenues – and all of our philanthropic support – to collaborative research and implementation work on the most pressing issues our community faces.

Since 2000, with the generous support of our donors we have committed more than $2 million to a range of projects focused on leveraging our community’s biggest strengths and confronting its greatest challenges.

Your continued support makes that possible.

There remains no higher praise than your investment in our work. On behalf of our Fund for the Public Interest Committee, please join us in supporting this year’s Fund and help us continue to steward Eastman’s monumental gift.

Since CGR is a nonprofit organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, contributions to the Fund for the Public Interest are 100% tax deductible.
