Friends of CRI

Good afternoon,

My name is Glen Hoffherr. I am the Board President of Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. also referred to as CRI. CRI is Culpeper’s designated Main Street organization. We are a 501 C3 non-profit, and are able to fulfill our mission of enhancing, celebrating, and enriching Culpeper’s Downtown and our community only through the most important work of our volunteers and the support of community partners.

In 2021-2022, the organization encountered many changes, which shifted our attention and focus to grants and programs that would generate direct cash flow for our downtown businesses. CRI achieved its goals towards the continued Downtown revitalization, which would have not been possible without the support of community members like you.

I would like to share a few of our key accomplishments this past year and ask that you consider becoming a CRI Friend and support our mission of stimulating a growing and stable commercial center in downtown Culpeper by increasing the use of downtown as a destination for residents and visitors, promoting and developing a diversified business mix, fostering residential opportunities in and near downtown and continuing to strengthen a unified and enduring sense of place.

With continued support from community partners like you, CRI will be able to continue to make a significant positive impact in strengthening the downtown district. Your assistance will allow continued growth of relevant downtown projects to ensure a growing economic climate for downtown Culpeper. I hope you will consider being a “Friend of CRI” by supporting our programing and continued efforts.

Thank you for your consideration.

Glen Hoffherr
