Ways to Support Us       
There are no dues or fees to attend meetings and no one is expected to donate. Our chapter is self-supporting through donations made in memory of a child or other donations made directly to the chapter.  We are a tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible. These donations enable us to be here for the families that need us.
Chapter funds are used for:
  • Welcome Packets for new members
  • Chapter phone 
  • Website and community outreach
  • Purchasing TCF brochures and printing of other materials
  • Candle Lighting service expenses
  • Annual dues to TCF national 
  • Training for chapter leadership
Our chapter is run by volunteers and we are always looking for people to help out with the various functions and events. If you have an interest, please reach out to any member of the Steering Committee. Volunteering to help does not mean you have to make a long-term commitment. You can volunteer to help with just one event.
