“The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.”

At the 2018 Power of the Purse, 16 women were inducted into the Dream Team, with four women increasing their Dream Team level to Create ($2,500) and one to Sustain ($5,000). What a remarkable accomplishment!

The Dream Team functions to promote, educate, and assist women and girls, and as members become more involved through networking and social events, they realize the value of increasing their financial commitment. And, the Women’s Fund is extremely thankful for these women!

The 16 women inducted at this year’s event were acknowledged for their continuing commitment to the Women’s Fund. These women have made a difference in what they do – for themselves, for our community, and for local women’s and girl’s organizations.

Would you like to join them? Click here to make your gift today. Current Dream Team members can consider increasing their financial commitment easily! Contact Jennifer Doyle at jdoyle@tfec.org or 717.236.5040 and help us not only Dream, but Create and Sustain as well!

The Dream Team was established in 2011 with a purpose of encouraging 1,000 individuals to donate $1,000 each to create a permanent $1 million endowment. From the endowment, annual grants are made available to local nonprofit organizations that provide services to women and girls in the South Central PA counties of Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon, Perry, and the Dillsburg Area.

Zachary Moore Music Memorial Fund

"TFEC is family to us. It means a lot to have the fund at a place where people cared about Zachary when he was alive, and care about this memorial fund that we’ve established in his honor."

Pillars with Purpose

"TFEC has a can-do attitude. They're invested not just in getting the job done, but also emotionally invested—which makes for a great partner."

Owen's Fund

"I think it's really important that we have a structure and an entity like TFEC to help the community thrive."
