The Crater Criminal Justice Training Academy (CCJTA) is an independent political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a governmental entity.
CCJTA has started the first non-profit organization, an IRS 501 (c) (3) organization; the Crater Training Academy Foundation (CTAF.)
The Foundation (CTAF) goal is to support the activities of the Academy.
Primarily the foundation will be able to apply for grants that the Academy is not eligible for because of their status as governmental entity. Also the foundation will be able to give individuals and groups a tax benefit for the items that they donate. CTAF is its own entity with a separate Board of Directors.
To engage with the community surrounding the Academy; in the coming months CTAF has plans to host a "movie night" at the Academy as well as be a host site for the National Night Out in August.
The Foundation has its own webpage.
