Foundation Month is Here!

Welcome to November, when members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) celebrate and honor the great charitable endeavors of our charitable partner organization, the Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF)!

TRTF just launched its annual appeal to raise funds for its four primary charitable programs and its endowment fund: “A Helping Hand,” Classroom Assistance Grants, Beginning Teacher Scholarships, the Disaster Relief Fund and the Lehr-Pritchard Endowment Fund.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 in donations to support its programs to help educators of the past, present, and future!

Since 2008, TRTF has provided more than $480,000 to educators of the past, present, and future, including $78,000 in grants to public school teachers.

Each year, TRTF distributes thirty $500 classroom assistance grants to educators all across Texas. The grants are awarded to public school teachers who demonstrate commitment to the education of Texas children through the creation of programs, events, learning platforms, or other innovative classroom projects.

We challenge our members to watch the videos below and really see how donations are changing lives! You can also read more about all of TRTF’s charitable endeavors in the third quarter issue of The VOICE.
