Notes to Annual Report

  1. Fee Income: 1/2 of 1% of the total value of each component fund managed by TCF is paid toward the cost of sustainability of the Foundation

  2. The Grantmaking Committee recommends to the Board of Directors approval of proposals from community organizations for projects that seek Foundation support. Although funds are limited, groups engaged in charitable projects are invited to review the guidelines for grant proposals found at www.tiptoncf.org/grants.htm on the Foundation’s website.

  3. The scholarship information listed in the printed report include only payments actually made from funds managed by the Foundation. Tipton and Tri-Central students (and alumni) receive hundreds of thousands in annual and financial aid dollars not reported here. For information on the TCF's role visit www.tiptoncf.org/scholarships.htm. The Information Night for the Class of 2014 will be November 7, 2013.

  4. Component Funds are all the endowed and non-endowed funds that are established with a particular purpose, including our General Endowment and others that help underwrite the costs of doing business as a community foundation. TCF holds Agency Funds established to produce consistent support for certain incorporated non-profit organizations (including churches), Field of Interest Funds that can make grants for particular kinds of projects rather than any particular agency, and donor-advised or designated funds, set up by and usually named for their principal contributor to benefit a particular group of causes each year.

  5. Management & General Expenses are those categories that are typical costs of any business. For TCF, they are less than 22% of total expenditures.

  6. Fundraising Expenses are those they help underwrite the costs of telling the Foundation's story and seeking the broad public support that is necessary for fulfilling its charitable mission. Although these vary, depending on campaigns and initiatives underway in any given year, they average less than 3% of our total expenses.

  7. Total assets include our investments in marketable securities (about $23.5 million on December 31, 2012), cash, and the value of the Foundation Office & Conference Center and the land where it is located.
