Our Wish List

It takes a lot of passion, motivation, and energy to run a growing non-profit, but it also takes a lot of other less-glamorous stuff.  We’re always in need of basics to help us run our day-to-day operations.  If you have any of the following materials to spare, we’d love it if you sent them our way:

Envelopes, letter and manila/clasp envelopes: for mailing grant requests and letters to schools
Stamps: mailing school funds and thank you notes alone is 400 stamps a year
Ink for printer: annual cost $250
Paper, letter sized: annual cost $75
Mailing labels: for printing bib labels and mailing thank you notes
Pop-up tent with our logo, for use at promotional events and on race days: appx. cost $300
Safety vests, help keep our volunteers safe and save on t-shirt costs: thank you, CoreActive Therapy!
Filing cabinet

We appreciate your support in helping keep the lights on at Tri 4 Schools!

Leaving a Legacy

There are several other options to help support Tri 4 Schools with a gift that goes beyond our areas of immediate need.  We recently received a gift to start an endowment fund that will be used for several purposes:

1. Establishing a permanent fund for scholarships and equipment assistance for kids in need

2. Funding for new initiatives – such as our Exercise to Achievement program – that will help us continue to reach new communities and more children.

Gifts made to the endowment will remain in perpetuity and help us continue to fulfill our mission of offering healthy opportunities for ALL children.

Finally, if you are interested in making an estate or planned gift to Tri 4 Schools, please contact our Executive Director at  We are prepared and enthusiastic about helping you make a gift that will leave a significant impact on the lives of kids in our community.
