While raising and disbursing grants is still our primary focus, we are finding other ways to help support our community while continuing to support the Foundation.
Giving always feels good, but sometimes donors want a little more “bang for their buck,” such as enjoying the benefits of charitable tax receipts. Unfortunately, many small groups working to raise their own funds are unable to issue tax receipts potentially losing donors. The Foundation now works with these groups, through a Partnerships Agreement, to issue receipts giving donors another incentive to give. Of course, these small projects must meet the same criteria as we use for TRCF funded projects, but this really is a win-win situation for us all as we enjoy a small percentage to cover our costs and local groups can solicit more funds.
Applications for partnerships are accepted three times per year: January 31, June 1, and October 1. Please download the application below, read the document and submit completed applications and supplementary information.
