TCF awards grants with an overall philanthropic strategy and intentionality to be responsive to the needs of our area. Effective grant making promotes social capital and supports the value of community. Our funding seeks to impact systemic change, and increase opportunities for people to overcome economic, political and social barriers creating access paths to services and community participation. There are times in grant making when funding outcomes take on a narrower focus, particularly when new and critical areas of need emerge in our community, or when some areas of community call out for strengthening. In our work throughout the community, both in grant-making and convening, we are paying close attention to discover those emerging trends.

Because we Gather, Steward and Share our resources wisely, taking a broad view of the connections among our communities' resources and organizations, we are able to make informed decisions which amplify impact and result in community growth. The strengths of knowledge and networking, making connections and managing our human and monetary resources make TCF an agent for growth. Sharing our stories of impact is one of the clearest ways to demonstrate the ripple effect from donation to direct impact on the lives of our friends and neighbors.
