TCF’s Field of Interest Funds serve as a powerful avenue for targeted philanthropic investment, enabling donors to leave a lasting impact on causes and issues deeply aligned with their personal values. Funds can be created to address specific areas of concern within the community, spanning from education to healthcare to environmental conservation to the arts, and everything in between.

One of the notable strengths of TCF’s Field of Interest Funds lies in their adaptability and responsiveness. These funds are overseen by TCF’s team of staff and dedicated board members, who employ their knowledge to ensure that donors’ contributions are strategically allocated to effect substantial change in their chosen areas of interest. This level of care offers donors the assurance that their resources will create tangible change in the community. Moreover, Field of Interest Funds can foster a sense of camaraderie and shared purpose, as donors with common passions can combine their resources, amplifying the collective impact of their giving.
