Why I Partner with The Foundation for Enhancing Communities

testimonial-donors“When we were looking for an organization to help us with our charitable giving, it didn’t take long to choose TFEC due to their integrity and long standing reputation of making sound investment decisions. We were happy that TFEC could accommodate our wishes that initial contributions are sent to Vickie’s Angels and provide flexibility for us to choose how remaining funds are granted.”

– Drs. Andrews and Patel, A. Thomas Andrews & Shashikant B. Patel Charity Fund, Donor Advised Fund

Planned Giving – 1920 Legacy Society

In addition to accepting direct contributions, TFEC assists donors in making planned gifts. Often these gifts are deferred based upon personal estate planning and the income needs of the donor. Even though gifts might be deferred, the gifts could have immediate tax benefits. Deferred gifts include bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable annuity remainder trust, charitable lead trusts and real estate with retained life interest. Donors who make a planned gift or remember TFEC in their wills are invited to become members of our 1920 Legacy Society. Members of the 1920 Legacy Society receive special recognition in our Annual Report, invitations to all TFEC events, and a special luncheon and gift to thank them for their planned gift.

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."
