When you support TCA, you are helping to develop the heart, soul, mind and strength of students. In addition to STA and the Pursuing Excellence Campaign, you can support the greatest needs of TCA by giving an Unrestricted gift. To give to a specific project, select Other on the donation form and provide the designation.
The Investment Committee for TCA Foundation oversees the management of the endowment that benefits TCA. The endowment is invested to provide needed income in a predictable way while seeking to grow the balance of the fund over time.
Named endowments are established and funded by donors to meet specific needs and often to honor or remember people who have made a significant impact on their lives.
At the TCA Foundation, most named endowments benefit Student Tuition Aid and Teacher Enrichment. The minimum amount to establish an endowment is $25,000.
The Joyce E. Millet Endowed Student Tuition Aid Fund
In 1985, the endowment designated for Student Tuition Aid was named in memory of Joyce Millet, the late wife of William E. “Bill” Millet. Bill began the first scholarship fund in 1974 and has been devoted to raising needed funds for STA for almost 50 years.
