Crystal Springs Foundation (CSF) is named for Crystal Springs Farm, the old dairy farm where the Murrays live.
CSF supports a handful of carefully selected high-impact organizations whose leaders and employees have a knack for dramatically improving the world. This support is provided via grants and program related investments (PRIs). The foundation does not respond to unsolicited requests for assistance.
We encourage like-minded individuals, families and foundations to support some or all of these high-impact organizations.
