In addition to our annual campaigns and special projects/programs, the Foundation raises funds through honorariums and memorials and special events — an annual golf tournament and Champions For Justice Events. The Foundation also seeks funding and grant support from charitable foundations of all types, corporations, area community organizations, and individuals.
Founding Fellows of the Texas Prosecutors Society
The foundation is kicking off its campaign to establish a select group of supporters we're calling the Founding Fellows. Our Fellows will be part of our new membership group called the Texas Prosecutors Society. We have hand-selected 106 prosecutors and alumni from across the state whom we want to honor by including as a founding member. (The number of 106 signifies the number of years TDCAA has been in existence.) We will be sending invitations out within the next month.
We are asking the Founding Fellows to commit $250 per year for 10 years or a one-time gift of $2,500. Of course we accept larger pledges; one of our generous TDCAF Board Members pledged $10,000. The purpose of establishing the Founding Fellows program is to gather proceeds to establish a permanent endowment for the foundation.
Our Founding Fellows will be recognized at the board dinner at the Annual Criminal & Civil Law Update next SEptember, and we plan on hosting a special cocktail reception annually to recognize new members.
Honorariums and Memorials
Honorariums and memorials are terrific ways to show that you care — whether you want to comfort a grieving friend, give a birthday gift to a friend or relative, or recognize a respected colleague or valuable employee.
All gifts are acknowledged to the honoree or their loved ones, while gift amounts are kept confidential. Honorariums and memorials are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations, and their benefit extends beyond the donor’s friends, colleagues and loved ones.
