CRO Glassy holds one fundraiser annually, at the beginning of a new school year. All donations go directly to fund programs that benefit the children of the schools we serve in our local communities. The majority of contributions are directed toward education. The Glassy CRO Advisory Council defines the allocation of funds in collaboration with a needs assessment provided by each school Principal. The annual budget is approximately $75,000.
Approximately 80% is devoted to education and the remaining to human services. $325,000 has been donated to support our schools’ initiatives during the past 5 years. Schools We Serve
