IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE UNITED WAY OF THE CAPITAL REGION

COVID-19 COMMUNITY RESPONSE FUND

TFEC and the United Way of the Capital Region have partnered to establish the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. Together, we are committed to serving our most vulnerable community members by providing support to our long-standing and trusted nonprofit community partners on the frontlines.

TFEC’s COMMITMENT TO

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION.

The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) Board of Directors and team have taken the last few months to acknowledge and reflect on issues of systemic racism and oppression that are facing people of color in our communities. TFEC works to support all members of our communities in order to reach their full potential.

For our community, for good, forever.

Inspiring giving by partnering with donors to achieve their charitable goals and strengthening our local communities by investing in them now and for future generations.

TFEC in the community

We believe that a flourishing community is one based on equality and inclusion. Where we all come together to ensure that no one is left out. Where everyone has a voice—and the power to activate change.
