A Morning of Inspiration

The Fund for Women & Girls Annual Grantee Recognition Breakfast 2019

The days start to get a little longer and a little brighter, and the Fund for Women & Girls leans into this warmth. Every spring, the Fund celebrates its grantees at the Annual Grantee Recognition Breakfast. This year, on April 18 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel, the Fund’s 13 grantees gathered to speak on how their grant is allowing them to impact the lives of women and girls in our region. Through the Fund for Women & Girls and the power of collective philanthropy, a total of $25,000 was granted in 2018.

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."
