A MESSAGE FROM Jeff's Team TFFT Fundraising Page
The Foundation for Tomorrow (TFFT) is a small, non-profit organization, based in Charlotte, NC, whose goal is "to change the trajectory of a child's life through the power of education." With consistent and thoughtful investment in students and teachers in Tanzania, TFFT offers orphan and vulnerable children the opportunity to succeed in life. TFFT's services include access to quality schooling, health and psychosocial support, and life skills programs. TFFT also works to improve the quality of instruction, resources, and school management through training excellent educators. TFFT's successes create a ripple effect for scholars and teachers to have a positive impact in their communities that will allow a much larger percentage of Tanzanians to thrive. 

Our daughter, Samantha, pictured below with some of the TFFT scholars in Arusha, Tanzania, is the Development and Operations Manager for TFFT.

"Team TFFT" is a dedicated group of athletes, including 5K, half-marathon, and marathon participants, who seek donations to support TFFT's efforts.

I will be walking the 2023 Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon on April 29 (my 13th miniMarathon; my 16th half-marathon!) as part of the 2023 Team TFFT and would appreciate your support for my fundraising efforts. No donation is too small to make a difference. Please click on the "Donate Today" button above and thank you!
