Improving Quality of Life. See how TRCF grants are making a difference.

In 2017, TRCF granted $40,000 to help area non-profits like these achieve their goals. Your generous gift will make it possible for us to expand our community grant program and support more local organizations.

Reel of Hope

Reel of Hope used our grant to produce video profiles of kids awaiting adoption. The videos share kids’ faces, laughs and personalities—encouraging prospective families to step forward to care for these incredible kids.

Thumbs Up High 5k

This run, walk, bike, blade event raises money for mental health, suicide awareness and prevention. They used their grant to purchase an emotional support dog for a family devastated by suicide.

Open Doors for Youth

Open Doors for Youth serves area youth experiencing homelessness or housing instability. Our grant provided essential support for its drop-in resource center in Elk River.
