What is the Tigard Christian Fund Foundation?
The Tigard Christian Church Foundation was established to invest designated money given by TCC members beyond their normal giving, so the interest earned on this pool of money could be distributed to special causes and projects.
Members of TCC contribute to a variety of organizations beyond the walls of the church, either through charitable giving or volunteering their time. These organizations often have special needs that require extra fundraising. The resources managed by the Foundation are intended to provide support to these special needs (fundraising allows). Members involved in a charitable organization (by giving of time, talents, or treasures) are encouraged to submit an application to the Foundation for funding for special projects. A few examples of organizations the Foundation has assisted with projects are:
How Do I Get Involved?
There are two ways to get involved: First, if you know of a special project for a charitable organization that meets the religious, charitable, benevolent, or educational purposes supporting the mission of TCC, complete an application and submit it to the church office or to a Foundation board member. Second, there are those who might wish to donate money to the Foundation (beyond normal giving, such as a memorial donation). The money available for funding comes from the interest earned on the resources managed by the Foundation; ensuring funds will be perpetually available for future requests.
