TEF in 2013

How TEF has helped TCS in 2013
100% of your donations go back to our schools!! This is how the funds have been allocated.

 Successful fundraising in 2013 = money for our schools!!

It has been a great year for the Tuscumbia Education Foundation!  Our goal is to promote and support the programs and activities of the Tuscumbia City School District.  The Foundation was established in 2006 to act as an “academic booster club” for the Tuscumbia City Schools.  


In 2013, we experienced a revitalization which included adding board members and conducting five major fundraisers, (The Pageant with a Purpose, Tuscumbia’s Got Talent, TEF Golf Tournament,  $20.12 Campaign and a Fall Spaghetti Supper).  We are grateful for all the support we have received from our parents, teachers, alumni and community.   

In 2013, we raised over $25,000.00 to give back to our schools!  Grant applications were due in October and we received 26 applications.   With many worthwhile projects vying for a limited amount of grant dollars, deciding which grants to fund was difficult.  After a month of much discussion and many questions, we are happy to announce we have 22 grants selected for full or partial funding. (Click the Additional Pages box to the right to learn about these grants and other on going projects.)  Congratulations to our teachers!

 We hope to fund even more grants next year, but we cannot do it without your help.  We will have the Pageant with a Purpose, 3rd Annual Tuscumbia’s Got Talent Event, the Warren T. Johnson Golf Tournament, and our $20.14 Campaign.  We accept all donations, including those in honor or memory of a teacher, loved one or friend.  We hope you will support our efforts.
