The grant committee is most interested in supporting our employees' and our customers' passions. The more involved the organization and the local store employees are the more favorable the grant is looked at. Also, if a TCC customer is passionate and involved with a particular non-profit, and they have expressed this interest to a TCC employee. The more engagement opportunities that have happened or have the potential to happen the better. Also, the committee likes to see a large impact with the donation request. Projects that budget $10,000 or less are looked upon more favorably.
