Tee It Up for Campers Reaches $250,000 Milestone In 2018, the Tee It Up for Campers committee of volunteers surpassed the $250,000 milestone in cumulative total raised for True Friends. Many members of the Tee It Up for Campers committee were part of the Freeborn FFA Chapter and participated in FFA Corn Drive fundraisers for Camp Courage, which many FFA Chapters still participate in today. When the Freeborn school closed, this group of friends still wanted to financially support Camp

Courage, so they organized a golf tournament fundraiser. In 2000 they hosted their first tournament and raised $2,970 for camping equipment. As the annual golf tournament grew, the group added a wine tasting event for individuals who may not be interested in golfing. Their 2018 golf tournament and wine tasting raised a combined total of $28,924 for True Friends which help them surpass the $250,000 mark in cumulative total raised. Thank you to this incredibly generous and devoted group of volunteers!


FOREVER FRIENDS LEGACY SOCIETY The Forever Friends Legacy Society was established in 2014 to recognize those closest friends of the organization who have chosen to name True Friends as a beneficiary of their estate plans. These beneficiary designations come in the form of wills, trusts, life insurance policies, retirement accounts or other trust arrangements where beneficiaries are named. The goal of this group of donors, through its long-term financial commitment to True Friends, is to provide a substantial base of endowed funds from which earned investment income can provide a significant portion of the annual operating revenue for the organization. These endowed funds will be invested and managed by the True Friends Foundation. As the organization embarks on new ventures to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, the True Friends base of financial support must be broadened by finding more “heroes” with the heart and resources to help participants and their families. These heroes are members of our Forever Friends Legacy Society. Christine Adolphson † Ruth Anderson † Mary F. Andresen Shirley Andrews † Anonymous (14) AVI Systems, Inc.
