1995 | FOUNDING BOARD
The Trends Charitable Fund (TCF) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1995 to issue grants to Arizona 501(c)(3) organizations that meet the TCF mission to support programs in need that positively impact women, children and their families where TCF can make a significant difference. Funds have been granted for both operational and capital expenditures.
The TCF mission is carried out through the volunteer work of dedicated TCF Board Members, Trendsetters (women honored at an annual “An Evening of Trends" event for their community leadership), and other community volunteers. Funds are raised through one major fundraiser (An Evening of Trends in the fall). Grant selections are made public in November/December by majority decision of the TCF Board of Directors after careful review and discussion. Over the years, TCF has donated over $5,000,000.
