TECH Foundation

Funding the Future

The TECH Foundation provides long-term support for TECH, Inc. The endowment is built through charitable
gifts, such as gifts of cash and stock, as well as funds from bequests, trusts and annuities. Some of these planned giving instruments even over lifetime income payments back to the donor. But all of these gifts are invested, and the
investment earnings provide annual support for TECH, Inc. for many years into the future.

As you consider a gift to TECH or the TECH Foundation, you may ask yourself which is the right option for you? Think of it like this; TECH, Inc. is a checking account and the TECH Foundation is a savings account. As a donor, you can decide where you want your money to work - immediately to take care of immediate needs or future gifts that are invested and protect  TECH, Inc. legacy. Either way, your gift makes an impact and a difference in the lives of those we serve.
