Connecting People Who Care With Causes That Matter
Whether your resources are great or small… the United Community Fund can combine your gifts with those of many others, to benefit the causes that matter to all, through the Tipton County Foundation.
For fifty years, Tipton County’s Community Fund helped to provide a social safety net of support to United Way-type human service organizations. Now, as a part of the Tipton County Foundation, annual donations are still essential to make up the difference from what these agencies can raise on their own to what is needed.
Thank you very much for your past contributions to the United Community Fund. TCF is pleased to underwrite the costs of the annual drive, so that every dollar that you donate this year can be used next year to supplement Foundation grants and other funding of these causes. The need is as great as ever. We hope you will renew and even increase your financial support by sending your check to TCF. Your contribution through the Tipton County Foundation is tax-deductible.
Contributions to TCF aim at a broad range of interests —arts and culture, community development, education, the environment, health and human services— worthwhile projects and programs. People who care deeply use the United Community Fund to address our most pressing needs. Many thousands of dollars are needed annually from individuals, businesses, and other charitable sources to operate life-transforming programs. They benefit senior citizens at the Encore Center, and young people, such as through the Boys & Girls Club and the Shoes for Kids Fund, carry on family support through Mustard Seed and Alternatives, deal with crises and emergency needs thanks to the Ministerial Association and Salvation Army, and help to address hunger, housing, clothing, and personal growth. The United Community Fund, managed by the Tipton County Foundation, helps to sustain these local organizations.
Members of the community can thus contribute their fair share, whether by a one-time yearly gift or memorial, a payroll deduction arranged through their employer, or a pledge that enables them to increase their total gift by spreading the payments. (Company owners and managers who would like to offer the payroll deduction plan to their employee group are urged to call the United Way of Howard County at 457-4357).
Please make a personally significant contribution to the work of the United Community Fund, the Shoes for Kids Fund and any of our special causes. Kindly make your check payable to “TCF” and use the memo line to indicate the project(s) you would like to support.
Thank you again, very much!
