Creative Arts League Endowment Fund (CALS Endowment Fund)
The Crocker Art Museum Foundation is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is “… maintenance, enhancement and expansion of the Crocker Art Museum and its services to the Sacramento community.” It maintains a pooled investment fund from which distributions are made to the Museum.
In 1993 CALS established the Creative Arts League Endowment Fund with the Foundation. Distributions from that fund are restricted to acquisitions, exhibitions and education in the field of crafts. The Foundation has used a substantial portion of the CALS Endowment Fund to establish a gallery of fine craft at the Museum.

Honoring Lois and David Warren
CALS established a second endowment fund with the Foundation honoring Lois and David Warren for the significant contributions they have made to CALS over the last 40 years. Lois was President of CALS from 1973 – 1975 and again from 1995 – 2000. Her leadership at these crucial times was invaluable. She was also chair of the important “Living Treasures” exhibition at the Museum in 1985. Although Lois was the member of CALS and held the offices, David was always heavily involved and contributed thousands of hours of work on exhibitions and fundraising for CALS.
Contributions to the CALS Lois and David Warren Fund can be made directly to the Foundation where it will be held and accounted for as a separate fund.
