Support the Texas Retired Teachers Foundation by viewing and sharing this video!
The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) preserves the legacies of public school personal through its charitable giving. Emily Tannert, a high school band teacher in Georgetown, Texas, explains her reaction to receiving a grant from the Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF). TRTF’s foundation month is in November, but you can donate now at trtf.org!
The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation’s (TRTF) annual fund-raising event, Foundation Month, begins in November. Foundation Month seeks to fund charitable programs such as classroom assistance grants.

TRTF awards 15 classroom assistance grants yearly, each worth $500. These grants make a positive impact in the lives of active teachers by providing funding for projects and equipment that would otherwise be inaccessible.

TRTF is committed to improving the past, present and future of teaching in Texas. But we can only do so much before exhausting available funding resources.

TRTF needs your help to continue the charitable programs that comfort retired teachers, inspire active teachers and enable future teachers to achieve their dreams.

Since 2008, TRTF has provided more than $170,000 to public school retirees, teachers and students. This type of impact would not be possible if not for the generous donations provided by you.

Throughout the month of November, Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) local units will be accepting donations towards TRTF. You have the power to make a change through the simple act of charity.

Please consider donating on the TRTF website, trtf.org, or over the phone at 1.800.880.1650.

You can look forward to a new TRTF video update every week throughout the month of October!
