COA's Charitable Involvement 

In addition to a large number of community events, COA also supports these primary initiatives. 


The Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation Is all about balancing humanity with nature.  This is a foundation designed to help the many small independent groups pursue their goals.  Charities are vetted VERY carefully and funds are ONLY directed to causes within which a large percentage of the money goes DIRECTLY to the front line.
