TCI Foundation Fundraising News

Thanks to you and your generosity, and the growth of our investments, the TCI Foundation & Tall Clubs International have awarded this year 23 scholarships to well deserving students from across North America.

This year we are trying something a little different as a fundraiser to benefit our scholarship program and we need your assistance. On behalf of the TCI Foundation Board of Directors, I am writing to our Member Clubs, Individual Members and Members At Large… to donate an “item” of value to our first ever Online Auction!

  • Gone is the limitation of having to be present at convention to participate as either a donor or buyer.
  • Gone is the question – “How will I get the donation to convention, if I am not attending?”
  • And finally Gone is the worry “How will I get this home on an airplane?”

Please submit two to three clear photos, and a detailed description of the offering* and minimum opening bid. Your offerings can be items of unique value, gift baskets, gift cards, etc. Choose to donate an experience such as a gathering event package, tickets to a concert or sporting event, etc. Let your imagination & creative juices flow.

We will post them on our auction page on the TCI Foundation website. Listings will change daily as added items become available & bids start flowing, so you will have to check often.

We are open NOW for donations, send them by email to . Please place the word “Auction” in the subject line. We would like to open the auction page for viewing & bids by June 18th [two weeks prior to the start of convention]. There will be opportunities to view them at convention as well. More details coming soon, please direct all questions to Nancy Jacoby, Publicity Coordinator/TCI Foundation.


Sincere thanks go to TCIF Webmaster, Leta Johnson for making this pipe dream a reality, and the entire TCI Foundation Board for their support.
