The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) thanks the members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) for their generosity during Foundation Month, held in November.
TRTA members have donated more than $45,000 to help TRTF reach its $100,000 fundraising goal!
Your donations help support several charitable programs: “A Helping Hand,” the Disaster Relief Fund, Classroom Assistance Grants, and Beginning Teacher Scholarships. Additionally, TRTF supports the Lehr-Pritchard Endowment Fund to provide long-term revenue for “A Helping Hand,” and recently launched its latest endeavor—the TRTF Tutor Program—to reach every Texas child through reduced cost tutoring services.
Public education plays a vital role in our society. Every person who has a role to fill in our school system is significant. With the pandemic continuing to impact Texas in a big way, TRTF’s goal to help educators of the past, present, and future is more important than ever!
TRTF knows that students, parents, schools, communities, and retired educators all have been adversely impacted COVID-19. We know that this situation is not yet over; but we believe we have a part to play in making it better. As a 501(c)(3), we are in a unique position to raise donations and deploy them through our unique charitable programs.
Please help if you can or let us know if you are a retiree in need of assistance or know of an educator or future teacher in need of a financial boost (you may reach Sarah at TRTF by emailing email@example.com).
Today is Giving Tuesday, a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity one day each year. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world. It is a day when we can all come together and give back in many ways, no matter who or where we are.
Please consider making your tax-deductible charitable contribution to TRTF today. You may donate online here or call 1.800.880.1650 and ask for Sarah. Thank you for your consideration!
