Operating as a charitable adjunct to The Cliff Dwellers private club, the mission of the The Cliff Dwellers Arts Foundation (CDAF) is to support the arts. This is accomplished through its providing funds in the form of grants to arts-oriented organizations and individuals, presenting events at the club such as concerts, performances, and films, and sponsoring an annual music competition.
Grant recipients are chosen by the full Board from qualified applications received by a set deadline each spring and fall; applications are available on-line and members are encouraged to invite their favorite groups to apply.
Funds are provided through voluntary contributions from club members and are distributed biannually. Specific information regarding past grants and distributions is available to club members.
