The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) is getting ready for fall! Fall is when TRTF begins planning for its annual fundraising drive to support its many charitable programs: "A Helping Hand," Beginning Teacher Scholarships, Classroom Assistance Grants, the Disaster Relief Fund, the Legacy Campaign, and the Lehr-Pritchard Endowment Fund!
The districts and local units affiliated with TRTA often take some time during a fall meeting to speak about the Foundation's programs, goals, and accomplishments and to help raise funds for the year.
Check out these TRTF Fall Talking Points for some great information you can share with TRTA members!
Please keep your eyes peeled for the 3rd quarter issue of the VOICE, arriving in mailboxes in late October. It will feature an article about how TRTF's programs have impacted educators across the state of Texas this past year, especially those who were affected by Hurricane Harvey and continue on the path to recovery. Included in this issue will also be TRTF's Annual Appeal letter for all members of TRTA. We will post more about this publication in October.
