Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Increase impact through larger grants to nonprofits, more service days for volunteers to serve in the community, and add programming in the form of TRF Camp Build.
Improve fund development by increasing revenues from our golf tournament, increasing sustaining contributors, add annual sponsors and build a model regarding local fundraising.
Streamline operations through delegation to committees and adding marketing support.
Improve public relations internally and externally.
Increase stakeholder participation.

We fund nonprofits working to end hunger, improve mental and physical health, obtain gender equality. Through TRF Camp Build, we will be feeding campers healthy breakfast and lunches, encourage hydration and safety, and stimulating creativity through building. We plan to accept an equal number of boys, girls, and nonbinary campers.

Through annual grants and TRF Camp Build as described above. We are starting camps in Gallatin, TN; Tempe, AZ; Austin, TX; Sherman, TX; and Anaheim, CA with the goal of adding 3 new cities annually. In 2024, we'll host weeklong camps in Phoenix, Austin, and Charlotte with Phoenix and Austin having second year programs. We'll continue to host mini electrical camps in Sherman and Anaheim. In 2025, we'll expand weeklong camps into Virginia and Southern California.

Executed inaugural camps. Launched applications and planning for 2024 camps.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
