Dear Trendsetters and Trends Patrons;

Since 1986, the Trends Charitable Fund has raised over $5 million to give back to the women, children and families of Maricopa County.  The vetting process every year is difficult and our board works very hard to make the decision of selecting the charities.  In 2016-2017, TCF granted money to three different charities, StreetLightUSA, Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, and Family Promise – Greater Phoenix.  Your donations have directly impacted each charity to support their missions and our community.

Dee Mitton, Waste Not Founder and 2013 TCF grant recipient told us, “With the generous donation of Trends Charitable Fund we funded all the expenses of 5 delivery trucks for an entire year.  We provided uninterrupted food distribution to our most vulnerable families who count on our delivery of food.  Thank you to the Trends donors for making this possible.”

This year we are continuing to have only one event to raise funds to support future charities in our county.  In addition to your table sponsorships we are asking for donations of auction items for our silent auction during the event.  These items will be used to raise funds for future charity grant request.

On October 20, 2017, at the Arizona Biltmore, we will have our amazing charitable event, An Evening of Trends!  Don’t miss this fantastic evening with entertainment to be announced soon.

We sincerely look for your continued support for this one time appeal to help us in our mission, to make our community a better place for everyone.
