Cascadia Radical Faerie Resource is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization registered with the State of Oregon. We maintain a platinum-level Guidestar rating for nonprofit transparency.

Mission
Cascadia Radical Faerie Resource (CRFR)’s mission is to promote health, wellness, education, outreach, and community for LGBTQIA+-identified persons and their advocates.

Purpose
Our purpose is to support the Radical Faeries and their northwest regional gatherings.

Values
By providing a safe environment for members to convene, we foster personal growth and exploration through shared values and experiences.

Who Are the Radical Faeries?
There are many independent groups of Radical Faeries globally with similar but varied values and intentions. We consider our particular group — the Cascadia Radical Faeries — to be an ever-changing collection of persons who believe in authentic living, healthy communities, unabashed creativity, and a community of unconditional support.

Program, Events & Activities in Support of our Mission & Purpose
Every year to advance education, outreach and community building in support of our mission, CRFR produces two Gatherings for its members. The Gatherings include educational and community-building workshops, support groups, healing circles, performance opportunities, and more. The workshops at each Gathering help members cope with and heal from experiences as gay, bi, trans and queer-identified men by promoting healthy life skills and authentic self-expression in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. See more on our “Programs & Activities” page.

Impact
Since its founding in 2002, CRFR has facilitated over 45 gatherings and served over 7,000 people. Our Gatherings attract region-wide attendees, with a majority arriving from OR, and others from WA, CA, and British Columbia. Attendees also come from throughout the US including New York, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Florida, as well as from around the world, with past attendees arriving from Australia, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Donate
Charitable donations support the Faerie Fee Fund and our BIPOC Faerie Fee Fund which extend low or no-cost scholarships for those with limited financial means to pay Gathering registration costs and transportation expenses.
